About the Book

Fergus Allen's work ranges broadly from sombre reflections on the loneliness and bestiality of human experience, through small fictional psychodramas, to light-hearted fantasy, as in his unexpected poem about Guinness's brewery. Throughout this book, though, can be traced a strongly distinctive sensibility, relishing both natural manifestations of the exotic and its embodiment in the English language, constantly seeking new formal challenges, and delighting in metaphor and music.
