• The Dossier by Michael O’Brien is a shocking resumé of fifteen miscarriages of justice in south Wales between 1982 and 2016. After being falsely imprisoned for murder, O’Brien was driven to discover more about the many notorious and dubious convictions made in south Wales over a period of thirty years. This is the shocking result of his research. He calls for an independent judicial enquiry into these cases. Available now.

  • In her new collection We Have to Leave the Earth, Carolyn Jess-Cooke deftly interweaves the personal and the political. Climate change is confronted in a sequence about the Arctic; poems that are vividly descriptive of an extreme landscape, sensitive to the effects of global warming. A second sequence, ‘The House of Rest’, is a history in 9 poems of Josephine Butler, (1828-1906) a pioneering feminist activist. There are also tender poems about family and mental health. Available now.
