So I'm officially relaunching it now - the book is now available for the reduced price of £7.99 directly from me and with free UK postage and packaging. You can also contact me at: email@example.com
Here's a taster from the book, including the lines Tom Chivers adds to the page about Human Form on the Penned in the Margins website:
So many things have come apartin my hands or somehow gone astray
they could form a museum,a mausoleum of errings and shortfalls.
Like the one we drifted into when at a lossthat unrepeatable afternoon
we explored the historical market-townin the rain. The vitrines of stuffed curiosities –
faded hoopoe with its punkish mohawk,a pangolin like an outsize fir-cone
endowed with limbs – amounted you saidto a ‘colonial mortuary’. The crude diorama
of a blacksmith’s forge – ventriloquist’s dummyabout to smite a horse-shoe while his wife
and child look blankly on – was so unlife-like,I wondered what a diorama of our lives
might resemble, a tableau vivant of Post-EverythingEnnui: mannequins of the three of us
watching adverts, waiting for the sky to clear,my finger poised to hazard a futile suggestion
(like exploring an historical market-town)-locked into our stances for the duration.
