DAMIAN GORMAN, who was resident artist at the Playhouse for almost a year, launches his new book, coming out with local community and peacebuilding organisation The Junction.
AS IF I CARED - Poems and other Parts of a Life is the first comprehensive selection of his best-known poems, and also contains passages of memoir touching on a young man's growing up in the late 70s and 80s.
Renowned for his readings, both live and filmed, Damian has tried to carry the energy of a live reading into book-form here. And on this evening in The Playhouse - where his performance of "ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN" premiered in September - will livestream an online reading to launch the book as part of our ongoing digital programme of events.
Described as "a great book for these times, and a superb gift for Christmas", AS IF I CARED is available in Little Acorns Bookstore from December 7th, and can also be ordered directly from the Junction by emailing email@example.com.
