Dr Dermot Glennon is a Silver Stake Slam-winning performer, prize-winning author of short stories covering many genres, and is possibly one of the greatest poets and philosophers of the last century by virtue of this being subjective and non-specific.
Open the door of this book and step into the universe of Dermot Glennon and you may not be able to get out again. You may not want to. You may want to get help.
Arranged in broadly thematic chapters with style guide introductions and explanations of the underlying ideas and philosophies that led to the writing of the poems within, this book offers poetic and philosophical pleasure by way of financial appropriation and benefits from a design that fits most standard bookshelves and coffee tables.
"A mystery ranging from everywhere to nowhere, calling for an intelligent open mind. Funny, hard and relatable." - Lauren Bolger, Paradox
"Like a picture by Escher, only funnier. Behind the formal mastery and strong sense of order lies real depth, sometimes constructed from a cleverly realised unreality. And when the harlequin mask is occasionally dropped the illusion is punctured by a startling emotional honesty." - Simon Rennie, poet
"Dermot's poetry is like a horror film. You want to hide but you can't stop yourself looking." - Rod Tame, Write Out Loud
