Fishing in the Aftermath - Poems 1994-2014

Author: Salena Godden Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/07/2014

Be clear, Fishing in the Aftermath is more that a sweeping up exercise, more than a greatest hits retrospective, more than a gathering up of old work. Salena takes us on a hair-raising ride through the process of a writer, the highs, the lows, the drinks, the lovers, the fights, the sex (especially the sex) that she has embraced like a method actor in search of a character, and shared with audiences over twenty years. Like a 21st Century female Bukowski Godden delivers her message straight and full strength. Not for the weak-kneed or faint-hearted, Salena is a hurricane of personality and energy, and the full force of the considerable talent that has made her a hit at literary festivals the world over is delivered here in all its frank glory.Fishing In The Aftermath - Poems 1994-2014 marks twenty years of poetry and performance and the majority of the work included here is previously unpublished in book form.
