Innovative Irish poetry from Ross Hattaway, New Zealand-born poet living in Ireland. 

“Strangers is an examination of parameters and possibilities. It explores spaces, concrete and metaphysical, easily moving between the natural and the man-made…Strangers will leave you with a curiously angry smile on your face as Hattaway chooses to answer life with whimsy in places, but bemoans the certitude of heartache as well. “

Colin Dardis


Innovative Irish poetry, third collection from Ross Hattaway How to Sleep with Strangers published by Turas Press‘ “How to Sleep with Strangers” is a mix of directness and obliquity both alarming and reassuring – like the idea of fate. These poems play and pun, and sometimes come close and whisper something terribly sad and shocking in your ear.’
