Product Description

Selected by Martin Parker with a foreword by Stephen Watts and an afterword by Emily Johns

John Rety – writer, editor and publisher, chess player, anarchist and pacifist – was best known in the literary world for his contributions to poetry, especially the much loved Torriano Meeting House events and Hearing Eye press. Less well known is John’s own poetry. Notebook in Hand is a selection from his collections as well as unpublished and new poems. His poetry is both simple and complex – tender, funny, poignant, and companionable, it is also edgy, acerbic, troubled and disappointed. As well as his better-known comic poetry, Notebook in Hand presents tender lyrics and trenchant political meditations, some of which may surprise, but will certainly delight, his readers.
