Felix Dennis, notorious multimillionaire publisher, first started writing poetry after a life-threatening illness. Over the last decade he has produced a string of successful poetry books, and has undertaken several high profile and successful poetry reading tours, where his expressive, lively readings have gone down a storm. Advertising his poetry evenings with the irresistible copyline: 'Did I mention the free wine?' he has entertained packed houses, through England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland - and his fans adore him. In 2010, journalist Jason Kersten accompanied Dennis as he undertook his most ambitious tour yet - a 21-city tour over three months. His description of being on the road with Dennis and his entourage, complete with a double-decker bus and a helicopter, makes highly engaging reading. More reminiscent perhaps of being on tour with a rock band than a poet, here is the behind-the-scenes story that will delight Felix Dennis' many fans and reveal a world of madness and mayhem, accompanied by the muse.
