NEW RELEASE – PERHAPS A WHALE SINGING BY JEREMY KINGSTON
This is Jeremy Kingston’s fourth collection of poems, and the second published by Paradise Press. Using a wide range of verse forms, rhymed and unrhymed, the 37 poems express feelings about erotic encounters at home and abroad before moving into darker areas of betrayal, revenge and the power and dangers of myth.
Topics cover childhood and family memories and relationships straight and gay. Jeremy reads new interpretations into photos, paintings, and myth. He deals with politics, war, and religion, always quizzically and often using some little-known fact or unusual angle to make a telling and thought-provoking point.
A theatre critic on The Times for more than 20 years, two of his plays were performed in the West End. He has written two novels and two children’s book. His poems appeared in the Paradise Press anthologies, Coming Clean and A Boxful of Ideas and his previous volume, Risking It, was also published by Paradise Press.
