Best known for his novels (The Family on Paradise Pier, The Journey Home), he has also written poetry for decades and published a number of anthologies. His deeply personal collection The Venice Suite (2012) was created as a response to the loss of a loved one and is now being translated into French by Marie Hermet as part of her CCI residency, with support from the Région Ile-de-France. For their dicussion around poetry and language, they are joined by current poets in residence Moya Cannon and Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe.
