A Pocketful of Windows is a book of small size – with a small price – but big ambitions.
Poet, novelist and lifelong poetry lover Felix Hodcroft has scoured North and East Yorkshire (and the Valley Press backlist) to find sixty-six poems to fill Pocketful's sixty-six pages; powerful, original and accessible work from thirty-six different poets.
The featured writers – aged from 16 to 92 – include some national names, and others who may be unknown even in their own towns. Carefully selected and arranged, their poems are windows into the lives and souls of others; poems that wring colour from the everyday and cut to the core. This is an utterly unique anthology, one that belongs in the pockets of poetry lovers everywhere; a book that can be yours for (roughly) the price of a single coffee.
