Waiting for the Brown Trout God
This is an awaited first full collection by Pauline Rowe. Her poems offer a series of elegies for lost love, for lost innocence, for the mad and the sad and those displaced by the cruelties of contemporary life. The confessional edge to these poems combines at once a sense of intimacy and of sorrow, inviting the reader to journey alongside the marginalised characters whose stories are told in Waiting for the Brown Trout God.
"Pauline Rowe's beautiful poems mix memory, language and love in a kind of alchemy that turns the pages gold."Born in Widnes in 1963, Pauline Rowe has a first degree in Law, an MA in Creative Arts, and is founder member of the charity North End Writers. She lives in Liverpool with her husband and five children. She has worked in local government, the voluntary sector, the NHS, and further, higher, adult and prison education. She has two pamphlets of poetry published, written a libretto for a cantana (Benares, 2005) and been shortlisted in competitions (The Liverpool Echo Pen Idol competition 2004, The Sefton Poetry Competition, Writing on the Wall Pulp Idol 2007, 2008, Crocus 3 chapters competition 2008 and the Frogmore Poetry Prize four times).
For many years her sole focus was poetry both as a reader and writer; she is interested in the poetics of motherhood and writing about the body, as well as developing work with sound, music and film.
Pauline is currently working on a novel about madness.
