Isabel Bermudez was born in Colombia and came to England as a young child. She was educated at King’s College Cambridge and has worked as a documentary film-maker and as a school-teacher. She is a tutor of French, Spanish and English. Extranjeros is her first published collection of poems.




"Here are the deep, heavy shades of a hot country, as impressions from the past stand out from the shallow surface of the present...the language spilling into Spanish 'like a basket of hanging plants'. This collection speaks truly to anyone who carries strong images of another land, the place of childhood - and that is all of us." Candy Neubert

"These poems understand the past is forever seeping into the present, even generations later; they are vibrant, colourful acts of personal, cultural and historical recovery". Martyn Crucefix
