About the author

Born in London, where he still lives, Gavin Selerie has long been involved with the city's network of experimental writing and performance. His charting of territory has parallels with that undertaken by Iain Sinclair, Bill Griffiths and Allen Fisher, and this exploration, through an overlay of voices, fuses past and present in a distinctly different way. Gritty, brash terms jostle with more polished expression, while jumbled syntax retains elements of fluent discourse. Awareness of the poem as construct tempers but does not erase an emotional base which drives the areas of engagement.
