"After Francis Amunategui": The appearance of a hot sausage with its salad of potatoes in oil can leave nobody indifferent ...it is pure, it precludes all sentimentality, it is the Truth.

About the Author:

He left in 1957 to read Philosophy and English Literature at the University of Bristol and later undertook postgraduate studies in American Literature at the University of Keele. He was a founder of The Resuscitator in Bristol in 1963 and Arts Council Creative Writing Fellow, University of Sussex, 1978-79. He is Head of Communication Studies at Anglia Polytechnic University, Cambridge.

Review:

Impossibly romantic and optimistic, miraculously avoiding gloom and didacticism to achieve a continuously surprising and euphoric surface ... related to ... classic simplicity of line. -- Andrew Duncan This is 'out and about' poetry, inhabiting Cambridge pubs and Eastern European streets, embracing non-sequiturs and apparently-random thoughts into the smooth thought-flow of event and image and speculation. There's a libidinal energy which resists gloom (hatred of the meagre portion/even the bars are closed when we leave the cinema) and the occasional break into what could almost be song lyric. -- Steve Spence Terrible work John James is an extremely enjoyable and charismatic poet. His work is like a vigorous breath of fresh air, full of variety, humour and surprise. It has a strong sense of lyricism and energy, a striking mixture of the experimental and the immediate that brings to mind the work of Mayakovsky or the New York poets of the 1950s and 60s. -- Charles Bainbridge The Guardian
