Publisher's Synopsis

This is Bob Cooper's third full collection of poems after a five-decade career which has also seen the publication of six pamphlets, some of which have been award-winning. True to form these latest poems deal with ordinary people, a number of whom, in a newly developed theme, have surreal encounters with historical literary figures. Bob's poems are ironic, funny and poignant with much underlying comment on our times.

If poetry is about voice it is also about listening. Bob writes what he hears in his unique and distinctive style.

The writer

Bob's poetry has been published in magazines and anthologies in the UK and abroad and has been translated into German. As well as poetry he has contributed articles to local and weekly newspapers, and written about fell-running, rock-climbing, and mountaineering for various outdoor journals and magazines.

Bob has won numerous prizes and his poetry has been performed on radio. Over the years, he has read at many Festivals and poetry venues in the UK including the Aldeburgh Festival.
