Play Book is the new collection of poems by Irish poet, Maurice Scully (b. 1952, Dublin, Ireland).
His writing career began in the early 1970s, and since 1981 he has published 10 books of poetry with publishers such as Wild Honey Press and Shearsman Books.
Scully has been editor of a number of influential magazines (Icarus, and The Beau), and through the 1970s and 1980s organised important readings and literary events.
Over the years he has taken part in conferences and festivals in Ireland, the UK, and the US, where his readings are prized as key interpretations of his complex, engaging work.
After many years living in Italy, Africa and the west of Ireland, the poet settled with his wife and four children in Dublin, where he taught for a time at Dublin City University.
