New Release: 'QWERTY' by Andrew Burke
Mulla Mulla Press is proud to announce the release of ANDREW BURKE's latest slim volume, QWERTY: take my word for it
This book is now available directly from the publisher at http://www.mullamullapress.com and will soon be avaiable in all good independent bookstores.
With vibrant cover art by ROSS BENNETT and 21 poems within, QWERTY is a collection of many tones and colours.
Here's what LUCY DOUGAN, poet and academic, says about the collection:
Andrew Burke is our Puck, our trickster, and aren’t we so very lucky for that. In the one move he would hoodwink us and in the next sum up the play (or life) so deftly and so sincerely that we are left breathless. Qwerty bears all the very stylish marks of later-life writing. Here nothing is forced, everything is earned and for that reason it feels right. This mercurial voice is funny, sad, absurd and wise by turns –open to loss and open to joy in equal measure. If I had to take a journey through a dark wood I would absolutely pack this book.
