Dream of the Condom PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dream of the Condom free pdf '...here he was/with cracked and sticky eggshells,/dangled round the sardine can/.../in the plastic rubbish bag/hanging on the kitchen door-/...'. So begins Dream of the Condom, where the hero turns back the pages of his sorry life for one memory-moment he can wholly savour. In 'Creation', God prematurely whispers His draft design of the world into all-too-solid fact. In 'Cockroach', the insect's 'late terrestrial light' spells Man's terrestrial doom. As well as tackling grander themes, Nicholas Swingler delivers -- in this collection of forty-something poems -- wry and quirky takes on school, family, first sex, insects, and many other of life's perennial coils.

About Nicholas Swingler

A barrister, university lecturer, linguist and many other vocations very much manque, Nicholas Swingler now views himself as intractably a poet. Though his work is published in magazines as diverse as Still and African Farming, this is his first one-man book. He claims to scramble eggs as excellently as Escoffier. Out and about, he wields an umbrella for shade against immoderate sun. At the chess board, as in life, he defends -- even when not besieged.
