Seven thought-provoking tales of unease.
Ostensibly created to produce vicarious frissons,
they nevertheless carry within them valid social,
moral and ethical undercurrents that await the
attention of any reader interested enough to excavate them.
Fifty-one poems that have, on the other hand,
been cut from a different cloth.
More eclectic and universally inspired, they examine,
through humour, satire, philosophy and religion -
not to mention a certain rhythmic reportage –
the established perceptions of life, destiny and
death; even questioning, along the way,
the very concept of existence itself.
Featuring thirteen, highly-detailed illustrations
by the author, this rich collection of poems, prose and prosody,
is filled with inquiry and social comment relevant to an
age of instability, inequality and doubt.
