The Potless Generation/James Linnane

The Potless Generation!

This is a collection of poems that touches on everything from the passing of time to the political mess we find ourselves in and often with a savage twist or sting in the tail. There is some lovely humour and then performance pieces like "Head for the Door" and "The Starkness of Silence" have a standard that should keep them around for a long time. If I had to pick a poem though on a once through "Cold Days Are Coming" hits the spot and it's worth getting your hands on a copy just for that. James is a member of both the Boyne Writers Group and The Meath Writers' Circle and details on purchase of the above can be had if you go to .
Or Bookschat Corner, link to the right! This is his third book in all, the others being "Never Take an Irishman Seriously Unless He's Armed"-New York 1988- and "The Life and Times of a Gotcha" -2011-. He lives in Ballivor County Meath with his wife and two children.
