Smoke and Mirrors Anthology

With John Cooper Clarke, Attila the Stockbroker and Ian McMillan!

The Smoke and Mirrors anthology features 27 poets and includes a CD with over 30 tracks.

“Smoke and Mirrors is a cracking book. It is the kind of read that sits you down in the audience, on the front row. It pulls you up close under the noses and the mouths of the poets staring (talking) back.”

Simon Thackray, The Shed
