Hippocrates symposium and Dorothy Molloy

I have been reading Dorothy Molloy's two collections from Faber, Hare Soup and Gethsemane Day to prepare for chairing a session at the Hippocrates Symposium tomorrow on poetry and medicine.

Somehow when Hare Soup appeared in 2004, I was distracted, absent, but what a delight to discover these two books. As I read, I am drawing up a list of friends I want to give these collections to. At one stage I had to stop myself reading aloud on the train, saying:"Listen to this."
