Further Information:
The title poem marks Mike Jenkins’ transition from the teaching profession to a free-ranging life thereafter. In this new collection of his work, there\'s a wide variety of subject-matter and approach. His longer poem, \'Journey of the Taf’, traces the river\'s journey from watershed to sea; a sequence of poems on the Troubles of Northern Ireland takes many viewpoints, including that of a car and chair! He pays homage to poets, dead and alive and there’s verse voicing concern about threats of a seagull on Cardiff Central station. Through all his work, the poet\'s wit and passion is pervasive.
\'Will provide chuckles, inspiration and food for thought. Unreservedly recommended!\' - Ceri Shaw (americymru), about \'BARKIN!\'

Mike Jenkins writes in a unique style that is sometimes raucous and often sardonic, but it can also be tender and plaintive, with a deep understanding of \'ordinary\' lives\'.
