New Release: ‘Ten Truths From Wonderland’ by Maria Castro Dominguez and Matt Duggan

I’m extremely proud to be able to say that you can now order a copy of a wonderful poetry conversation between Maria Castro Dominguez and Matt Duggan, ‘Ten Truths From Wonderland.’

This is a quite breathtaking piece of work and is enhanced by Spanish translations of the poems by Spanish poet Ana Gavila., although you won’t miss out if your Spanish is as rusty as mine as all of the poems are presented in English.

As ever, we’d encourage you to buy your copy of the collection direct from either Matt or Maria. The economics of poetry has always been horrendous at the best of times and buying direct means that every penny you spend will go to the poet.

This is a big thing for us at Hedgehog – it is all about supporting our poets as best we can.
