The Angel and the Strawberries

Vesna Goldsworthy read from her recent Crashaw Prize winning poetry collection, The Angel of Salonika (Salt, 2011), one of the Times Best Poetry Books for 2011, and her memoir, Chernobyl Strawberries (Atlantic, 2005). A best-seller in a number of European languages, with fourteen editions in German alone, Chernobyl Strawberries was serialised in the Times, and read by Vesna herself as Book of the Week on Radio 4. Vesna's readings of Strawberries - including a sold-out evening at the English Theatre in Vienna - were broadcast in seven different countries, while the launch of the book's Romanian translation was televised and introduced by the Mayor of Bucharest. This is her first reading at Kingston University.
