One of Poem of the Week’s best moments. Catherine Anne Cullen, jewel of a poet she is, wrote The Earth Does Not Starve Us specially for the series entirely off her own bat. So stunned was I by the generosity of her labour, the gratitude never really leaves my voice throughout the interview. However, we were talking about the gravest of subjects, World Hunger Day, so perspective was called for. Many thanks again to Catherine.
