Parris is Alexandra’s third anthology. It is based on the themes of love, longing, loss, and death. The poems take inspiration from Irish mythology and also from the legendary poet, songwriter, and musician – Philip Parris Lynott (1949 – 1986)

“Poetry confronting loss and change”
Five Star Review on Amazon by Kate Garrett
If you have even a passing interest in Irish myth, rock music in general, Thin Lizzy in particular, or poetry confronting loss and change, you will find a lot to enjoy in this book. My favourite poems here after a first and second read are ‘We Three’, ‘1982’, and ‘Philomena’, but it feels like that could change depending on the day as most of the poems are equally moving. A lovely collection.
