An A to Z Art of Urban Survival, Following Diogenes of Sinope is exactly that: a selection of wide-ranging and adventurous poems where contemporary society juxtaposes and re-energises elements of older traditions, ‘former glories, ageing stories’… Myths of the moon and sun, chronograph artists running, instant imagist texts and a ballad of Grunge King Cobain are just a few of the colourful characters and narratives within this striking and thought-provoking pamphlet. Who were we – and what are we now? As identity, time, society, nature and relationships take the spotlight, there are ‘hypnotic details to be discovered’ on every page. ”
