Pretend You Don't Know Me | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Finuala Dowling

Pretend You Don’t Know Me brings together in one volume the best of Finuala Dowling’s funny, poignant and idiosyncratic poetry from four earlier prize-winning collections, with a section devoted to new poems. This new collection contains her iconic poem ‘To the doctor who treated the raped baby and who felt such despair’ as well as her tragi-comic cycle of poems on the theme of her mother’s dementia, and other hugely popular poems like ‘Butter’.
