‘The Oyster Boy, Mermaid & Other Poems’

The title poem of The Oyster Boy, is on display at the Colchester Roman Circus Visitor Centre, and the book is dedicated to the young people of the CO postcode, their teachers and their parents.

Adrian May, Associate in the Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Essex writes:

‘Highly readable but never lacking depth, Joan Norlev Taylor is a fine poet whose subjects show a rare sensitivity and immediacy. Her verse is fluently lyrical and sometimes playful, showing a subtle kindness and intelligence. The Oyster Boy title poem is like a novel in a short poem: detailed, containing a whole life and fun to read for all ages. A great collection.’
