SOUP for the WOUNDED – A Hearthy Blend of Home Truths, Healing & Hope
Following the success of his debut collection ‘Verses Versus Verses’ (2021), ‘SOUP for the WOUNDED’ is Kevin McCormack’s second published poetry collection. This new collection contains 52 previously unpublished poems, which (as it says on the tin) contains a hearthy blend of Home Truths, Healing and Hope. It’s a book of dark corners, chinks of light, nostalgia and romance. It’s got some social commentary in the mix, and there’s a couple of scoops of heresy through it too for added flavour. This book is a ‘must add’ for the collection of any reader with a passion for contemporary Irish poetry. The collection is dedicated to those who are honest with themselves – those who take ownership of every part of who they are – both the parts that jump up and down demanding to be heard, and the parts that sit trembling in corners. It is dedicated to the realists, idealists and dreamers, and those who strive one moment at a time to get well and stay well. An early reviewer of the collection described it as ‘Beautiful and brave’.
Kevin McCormack is a writer, coach, and spoken word artist who lives in Co. Cork, Ireland. He came to prominence as a poet during 2020 when he shared recordings of some of his works on YouTube and other social media platforms. His poems from during the late spring of 2020 (when much of the world was in 'lockdown'), continue to resonate far and wide; gaining him a following from as far afield from his native Ireland as South Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A. and Canada. Opening with one of his most widely known poems - 'If This Time', 'Verses Versus Verses' is Kevin's first poetry collection - a selection of widely contrasting pieces which demonstrate his versatility as an up-and-coming purveyor of words and imagery. 'Verses Versus Verses' is also available through Amazon as an Audiobook - voiced by Kevin Himself.
