A winner of the Cinnamon Press Pamphlet Prize 2014, adjudicated by Ian Gregson, The Missing Girl is Will Kemp’s third publication with Cinnamon Press.
Greek and Roman myth used to be a standard reference in poetry, but such references have become much rarer. This collection finds a way to renew myth by presenting it, at times, in more mundane contexts, but also by adding to it refreshingly contemporary, detailed and vivid images. It also handles narrative with very effective pacing and authority.
