Epithalamium: A song or poem in honor of a bride and bridegroom.

"Antiepithalamia: & Other Poems of Regret and Resentment" is John Tottenham's second book of poetry, a sequence of mean-spirited love poems, paying particular respect to the institution of marriage, and a meditation on the subjects of regret and resentment.

Morbid, bitter, self-pitying... perhaps, but offered in the spirit of giving as a tonic to those who are not blissfully content in love and work, and as a bracing antidote to the disease of unconvincing positivity that seems to infect almost every area of contemporary culture.

About the Author:

John Tottenham is a British-born writer & artist living in Los Angeles. After graduating from London's worst art school in the mid-'80s, Tottenham moved to the US, where he has resided ever since, mostly toiling upon the lower slopes of journalism. After many years of resistance, he finally sold out to the lucrative, fast-paced world of poetry. He is the author of "The Inertia Variations" - an epic poetic cycle on the subjects of work avoidance, failure, & indolence. The work was hailed as "a terrific collection” in the Guardian, "quiescent genius” by Mojo Magazine, and "comedy gold" by 3:AM.

Review:

"A terrific collection.” -- The Guardian, for The Inertia Variations

"Quiescent genius.” -- Mojo Magazine, for the Inertia Variations

"Comedy gold." -- 3:AM, for for the Inertia Variations
