strange fruits is a poetry collection by Kent writer, Maria McCarthy in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Maria is a poet of remarkable skill, whose work offers surprising glimpses into our 21st-century lives – the ‘strange fruits’ of our civilisation or lack of it.
Shot through with meditations on the past and her heritage as ‘an Irish girl, an English woman’, it includes poems reflecting on her urban life in a Medway town and as a rural resident in Swale.
She writes, and occasionally teaches creative writing, in a shed at the end of her garden. Her website is www.medwaymaria.co.uk
