Monkey Cover (small)Monkey On My Roof by Marita Wild

A chance meeting on a train, a jocular remark, a husband’s infidelities… This is a travel book with a difference. It’s about compassion and hope – a vivid adventure filled with warmth, humour, poignancy and occasional sexual frankness. It tells the story of Sally, Ailsa, Mark and Stephan and the love that links them. Sally, traveling alone in India to escape an unhappy marriage, encounters the young Ailsa who is suffering from a life-threatening illness, and they travel together for a time. Then Sally encounters Stephan: remarkably, she keeps meeting him on her travels … Through her journey and the people she meets, Sally comes to realise that her marriage to Mark is a charade; and, slowly, she begins to understand her purpose in life.

HUSBANDS FINAL cover SHRUNK jpgA Gallery of Husbands by Oliver Andrew

Here at last, in a single volume, Oliver Andrew presents us with the full range of his brave and witty poetry. Whether teetering on love’s edges or calling to us from the heart of the maelstrom, here is work teeming with wry observation. And at a time when poetry is so often marred by a self-conscious, look-at-me sense of its own cleverness, these poems stimulate and excite with their seemingly effortless command of the English language – its wealth of inflections, its rhythms and metaphor, and of course its vocabulary.

Why have we waited so long for this first book? Perhaps the answer is in the rich trawl of life’s experience it offers, impossible in an early work. In any case, we now have the chance to enjoy at leisure the musings of a considerable poet whose work has hitherto lain scattered throughout the poetic literature, in magazines such as Envoi, Iota, Orbis and Pennine Platform.
Price: £3 at meetings, or contact Tim on 01273 505642; or from Amazon.

Crows_coverA Feeling For Crows by Liz Jalla

The soulful journal of Edith’s flight from self-imposed limitation. Compelled by her need for physical and spiritual liberation, Edith finds herself, at moments of crisis, inspired by the freedom of birds. Along the way we meet Peter and his girlfriend Rosie, whose developing relationship prepares the ground for the transformation that will change Edith’s outlook forever. And when Rosie’s best friend Irena marries Peter’s friend, fun-loving John Heartley, another strand of this compelling tale begins to unravel; and so the reader is drawn ever closer to the very special magic that resides at the core of this unusual story.
