9781906817145: Strange Lights Over Bexleyheath

A poetic soap-opera where ancient mermaidens meet Glaswegian winos in a world that can only be described as doomed. This collection of poems ranges from dystopian visions of modern day London in 'Strange Lights over Bexleyheath', lust-driven nostalgia in 'Sligo Maid', to a sombre walk through Glasgow in 'In the Necropolis'. A manifestation of verse set in the past, present and future, this collection acts as both a tribute and parody to the literary greats as well as being a provocative read in its own right.

About the Author:

Mike Harding was born into an Irish-Catholic family in Manchester in 1944. The tragic death of his father when he was a baby and his working-class upbringing have provided a wealth of inspiration for his music and 'real-life' storytelling. After a somewhat chequered early career, odd-jobbing as a dustman, bus conductor and carpet-fitter, Harding attended university to study Education and worked part-time performing in folk clubs. It was then that he found his calling as an entertainer. Since this time, Mike has proved to be a respected folk musician, actor and presenter. Following on from his music, theatre and radio success, Mike has moved into poetry, travel writing and photography. He currently hosts a show on BBC 2 and has had over 25 books published.

Review:

'He exactly catches the coiled-up forces of natural energy' - TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT on Daddy Edgar's Pools
