Daylight of Seagulls

Daylight of Seagulls is Alice’s first full collection of poetry and is set in Jersey during the Nazi occupation. Drawing on archival sources, present day interviews, local war-time folklore and fragments of her own Jersey family history, as well as using elements of the local Jèrriais language, the poems explore the experience of the local population and those of other nationalities brought to the islands during the occupation.

Daylight of Seagulls is published by The High Window Press and was completed with support from ArtHouse Jersey.
