Milk Teeth is a celebration of all that is new and much that is old.
A new mother sees the world afresh through the eyes of her
child, aware that her own childhood is ‘trapped in videotape’; she
revels in musty pages of the Derry Journal file room and rues the
day the company phones arrived. Online dating, text-speak and
dizzying space-jumps - this is life in the 21st Century.
A native of Derry, Milk Teeth is Julieann Campbell’s first solo
collection of poetry, and is infused by her love of place and
people. Delving into the depths of the human spirit, Campbell
reminds us of the infinite power of memory and pays bold tribute
to her home and family, to her city and its history, throughout
the prism of their pasts and futures.
An important debut collection from one of Ireland’s finest young poets, emotionally intense, spiritually generous, lyrically beautiful... illuminating, at times prompting, provoking, inspiring... truly one to treasure.
