A gay, light-hearted bastard, Ken Bolton cuts a moodily romantic figure within the dun Australian literary landscape, his name inevitably conjuring perhaps that best known image of him, bow-tie askew, lipstick-smudged, grinning cheerfully, at the wheel of his 1958 Jaguar D-type, El Cid.  Bolton, a poet & art critic — a 'Sydney' poet living in Adelaide, & working there at The Experimental Art Foundation — is editor of Little Esther books and at one time edited the magazines Magic Sam & Otis Rush. Major publications include Untimely Meditations and At The Flash & At The Baci — and, more recently, The Circus, A Whistled Bit of Bop and Sly Mongoose.

Ken Bolton edited Homage to John Forbes, and wrote the monograph on artist Michelle Nikou. A selection of his art criticism appeared in 2009 as Art Writing.
