The third collection of poetry by Andrew Franks. This is his most coherent collection to date and firmly establishes Franks as an important voice in these dangerous times. Topics range from a miraculous night in London to … lost moments in faded seaside hotels… early mornings on the Tasman coast… Hitler’s assassin… eulogies for dead poets… the ace-face of the space race…reminiscences of loves ancient, faded and frantic… messages from Camp Delta and from dead anarchists… punk rock discotheques…internet sensations and celebrating the destruction of half the world’s wildlife!
