The Titanic Cafe revisited

Jane Holland has blogged at Raw Light about David Hart’s utterly splendid new book from Nine Arches Press, The Titanic Cafe closes its doors and hits the rocks or: Knife, fork and bulldozerultra modern retail outlet complex development scenario with flowers.

Her review says, far better than my meagre effort, just why this is a must-buy, but I’ll add one more thing. Having now got my hands on the actual book (I did the review from a preview copy), it’s a real thing of beauty, and even includes a pull-out map. I love maps, of any kind, so combining them with poetry is an absolutely surefire winner where I’m concerned.
