The new Honest Ulsterman is out today. I interview Ingrid Casey and Rachel Coventry about their debut collections, Casey's Mandible (The Onslaught Press), and Coventry's Afternoon Drinking in The Jolly Butchers (Salmon Poetry).
Sometimes, when you're formulating interview questions, you already kind of half-know the answer yourself, but you want to help illuminate something to the potential reader. In both these cases, I was delightfully surprised and informed by the answers throughout, giving me a great appreciation of both works. Ingrid and Rachel's responses are much appreciated.
