by Kevin Cadwallender
Kevin Cadwallender is one of the brightest poets in the North of England today. Public is his first collection.
His poetry is witty, satirical, full of energy and he is increasingly in demand to give readings, being both a poet for the printed page and a brilliant live performer. Cadwallender has been given several northern residences, including the Cumbria Co-op, the Great North Forest and a year with the Sunderland Echo.
"Straight talking, punchy, edgy, freefall voice devoid of decorative frills, echoes the urban landscape with angry surreal humour."
"Cadwallender's language is immediate and strikingly true to life... Poetry that explores popular culture in a thought-provoking, humorous and engaging manner."
