Hare Soup is the startling d but from Dorothy Molloy. Molloy's deftly crafted poems are as unsettling as they are affecting, exploring a world of intimacy from the tensely erotic to something altogether more malevolent. Using cabaret and dark comedy, she holds up a mirror to our most private relations, producing a poetry-of-the-absurd that will make your hair stand on end. But there is also a very subtle poet at work, whose lyrical, musical lines resonate well beyond their final reading.
Dorothy Molloy was born in Ballina, County Mayo, and grew up in County Dublin. She studied languages at University College, Dublin, before going to Barcelona where she worked as a historical researcher and painter. She lived in County Dublin with her husband, and died in 2004.
