Interior Night

Interior Night

Author: John Stammers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/03/2010

John Stammers has a poetic mind original enough to read the most mundane and familiar events as great portents and wonders, and an eye clear enough to uncover the surreal when it's right under our noses. Stammers' third collection is a vast map of an imaginative space that coincides with the known world, but radically changes the way we perceive it. Interior Night sees a restlessly eclectic mind engaged with the whole range of human creation, from our cultural icons to our cultural detritus. There are also dramatic monologues from the dark worlds of poverty and addiction, as well as typically unsettling run-ins with the shades of Rimbaud, Sterne and Keats. Stammers has focused all his celebrated daring and oblique strategie to produce a book of great emotional candour and seriousness.

Panoramic Lounge Bar

Panoramic Lounge Bar

Author: John Stammers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/04/2001

John Stammers's collection is witty, touching and clever - with brilliant images where love scenes are laced with irony and the details of contemporary life. He writes about irrelevant vampires living out their days on the sea front at Eastbourne; about flowers with 'fine pointed petals like scalpels' and is absolutely brilliant on music. His writing is vivid and assured.
