Am just adding HELEN MORT’s endorsement to Fair Acre Press’ next pamphlet (publication date not finalised! But we hope it will be September I think!)
Here is her endorsement and here is the cover of a fantastic poetry pamphlet coming out by the great John Mills !
‘When I read this collection, it wouldn’t let me go. These are poems of agony, joy and grief, bringing us the mundane, magical business of everyday life in surreal technicolour. Tender moments are observed with John’s characteristic wit. This is a collection which explores chronic illness in an unflinching way, but pain is not its defining subject. Inside these pages you’ll find a world of brief encounters, cigarette coloured cardigans, unsent letters, the naivety of water, the alchemy of making jam. John Mills shows us that we are all disintegrating, but imaginatively, brilliantly, strangely, burning bright.’
