This week, my guest will be the brill Paul Robert Mullen.
Paul is a Southport-born poet. Aged 30, Paul accepted a job at Guangxi University, in a relatively unheard of city in China called Nanning. After a chance meeting with American writer, Kate Evans, Paul started to get serious about pursuing publication. Weekly meetings in a coffee shop in Nanning led to the publication of Paul’s first collection of poems, curse this blue raincoat (2017), to positive reviews. A follow up collection, testimony (2018), came out in February, also to a very lively and encouraging reception. Another concept collection, including poetry, prose and photographic images (titled 35) was published in August 2018.
I’ll be chatting to Paul about poetry, and about his published work. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
