If you're in Sheffield on the 31st of October get yourself down to the Showroom to hear my friend Rob Hindle read from his collection "Neurosurgery in Iraq".

This is Rob's first collection of poetry, although he did publish a sequence of poems on the Sheffield Flood, and has had material in various anthologies and publications. He is also a regular at local poetry festivals.

I have read the collection and there are some wonderful pieces in there, some of which also have added resonance: I too remember Connell's dog, and the washer women in the gipsy 'district' of Madrid across the road from where Rob lived for a time.
Some pieces are developed from blog postings, and there are quite a few geographical references in there too...

Rob Hindle writes movingly and powerfully of Spain and South Yorkshire and beyond, captured and then liberated in a language that sings – Ian McMillan
