Love Me Tender by Nick Papaxanthos

Love-me-tender_lores-113x175

Award-winning poet Nick Papaxanthos’s first collection is a rollicking, fast-frame, strobe-light-illuminated tour through the surrealism of the ordinary. These poems, composed while getting a haircut or investigating the contents of a sandwich, peer through the windows of the mundane into a world of fractured wonder. The reader will find encounters with a rebellious spoon, a terrible bucket, a talking blanket and disillusioned farm animals. Each line in these poems is cannily alert to the endless and strange possibilities of language. Love me Tender has been braised to perfection to ensure tenderness.
