Red Lipstick & Revelations
Red Lipstick & Revelations includes international prize-winning and commended poetry. The poems take you on an unexpected and winding
journey: from the African night air to Montreal, the road to Strathclyde or the Stranraer ferry, shipwrecked, silver surfing or dressed to kill, we encounter love, loss, lamentation, laughter … and lipstick.
