by Jane Goldman

Border Thoughts by Jane Goldman is a collection of poems and elegies on the painter Caroline McNairn (1955-2010)

This collection was published in 2014 by the imprint SUFFICIENT PLACE.


Border Thoughts moves beyond the elegy genre, instead embodying and immortalising the deep soul and sparkle of her decades-long friendship with the artist Caroline McNairn (1955 - 2010) and their shared engagement with both art and politics.

"Goldman's experimental flexibility of lyric expression is unexpected and unflinching to a T as she tears through and deftly clambers over borders of all kinds. In the context of right now, there isn't a more thoughtful and energised response to the national and global political dynamics, and that's something that isn't likely to change."
