Inside the Smile — Tamsin Hopkins
Inside the Smile sees short-story author, Tamsin Hopkins, finding her voice as a wry, accomplished poet. In a debut pamphlet that punches way above its weight, Hopkins examines family relationships, the role of women, unusual landscape and surreal experience with a deft wit and scallop-sharp language.
Tamsin Hopkins lives in London with her husband, children and dogs. She spent her formative years in Lagos and Brighton. She studied German at Kings College London where her relationship with the Thames may have begun. Since then she has been preoccupied with the world’s rivers and oceans, and everything in, on and around them from mythology to ecology. Her collection Shore to Shore: river stories is an expression of this passion. Her short story collection Shore to Shore is also published by Cinnamon Press.
