Loving Little Orlick
From Dickens' Irish journeyman to Czech forest-demons, through ancient Roman shipbuilding, the apocalyptic rumblings of the Koran, and middle-managers of the oil and war trades spaced out on lapsed ethics, this sequence of 61 poems rips through the predations of what egotists are calling the 'post-9/11 era', with blacked-up humour and pretty bad grace. An epic collection which will inspire and infuriate even the most accommodated reader.
