Step through the door and discover Big Bumperton on his bicycle, Mrs. Beltinska in her bath, Monsieur P. on holiday, a transfixed girl in blue jeans, two lascivious figs, and a god who wanders shopping arcades. Drawing on avant-garde and traditional influences, this collection of poetry maps a surreal hinterland where the dark humor of absurdity lies in wait. At times comic, political, satirical, and erotic, this compilation is stocked with curiosities, jokes, and horrors.

About the Author:

Ian Pindar is a freelance writer, an editor, and a regular contributor to the Guardian and the Times Literary Supplement. He is the author of Joyce and a former editor at J. M. Dent, Weidenfeld & Nicolson and at Harvill Press.

Review:

"It was about time for somebody to be channelling Eliot, maybe Stevens, Laforgue, and the Metaphysicals to such clashing effect: 'bright as a seedsman’s packet,' with unexpected timbres and sonorities sabotaged by glockenspiel accents. Pindar is just right for the job."  —John Ashbery, author, John Ashbery: Collected Poems, 1956–1987
