45 – Roy McFarlane and Deborah Alma

Deborah Alma

Deborah Alma

Roy McFarlane reads from his first collection Beginning With Your Last Breath which opens with a deeply moving account of the discovery of an adoption and moves through lost love and friendships, the politics of place, race and culture and the power of music.

Deborah Alma shares poems from True Tales of the Countryside about sex, love and ageing in rural Shropshire and Wales and her experiences as a mixed-race, Anglo-Indian woman.
