I’ve missed the last two Crossing the Line readings but caught the last for the year at The Apple Tree on Wednesday. The readers were Lucy Harvest Clarke who read from Silveronda (if p then q, 2009) and from work forthcoming from Knives, Forks & Spoons press. Martin Corless-Smith, visiting from Idaho, read from English Fragments: A Brief History of the Soul (Fence Books, 2010) and a more recent book of ‘Roman’ and ‘Russian’ poems. Jeff Hilson is now filming as well as recording these readings. Fortunately there was enough extension lead to reach the solitary outlet. The mince pies came courtesy of a well-known supermarket chain.
