Wrecking Ball Press presents:
East Meets West
Poetry by

Lisa Glatt (West Coast, U.S.A.)
'....writes about sex in as funny and convincing and touching a manner as any woman I have ever read. If there is such a thing as a female Bukowski, it will probably be Lisa'
(Gerald Locklin)

David Hernandez (West Coast, U.S.A.)
'If you read one poem from his book Man Climbs Out of a Manhole, you'll have to read them all. And his imagination, humour, and the felicity of his metaphoric gift will bring you back to them again and again'
(Ron Offen, Editor of Free Lunch)

Greta Stoddart (U.K.)
'....an unnervingly good poet. Her poems are deceptively serene, characterised by an elegiac tone under which a suggestion of unease constantly shivers...always musical, always true, these are poems to dwell on'
(Jo Shapcott)

Ian Parks (U.K.)
'....a master of the elegiac cadence. These are poems caught between tides - ghosted with slippages, departures, possibilities. And at their centre, loss and love'
(Pauline Steiner).
Ian Parks will also be at Waterstones on Wednesday Nov 8th, 7pm.
