Summary

Hare Soup is the startling début 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.
