It Comes With a Bit of Song PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

It Comes With a Bit of Song free pdf This is a book about voices- voices of people and places and how we live our lives. It is also about silences and things we do not say. The voices of poverty and those caught in war, the living and the dead, the voices of real and invented people, dream voices and stolen narratives. There are poems about extraordinary moments when nuns ice skate and Monty Python meets his mother, when Bud is silenced by poverty and its relentless grip. J.G. Ballard enters Heaven, lions and tigers and pigs prowl across the pages, Grand Central Station takes you on another journey- there are shocks and surprises. The reader can travel to places that no longer exist and places that never existed, listen to maverick minds, wake up with a boy who has been asleep for 400 years, and tumble between the real and the surreal. These poems are original, musical, important and every so often they bite back.
