Living Museum, The

Edward Garvey-Long
Edward Garvey-Long paints us a world of vinegary fish n’ chips, hidden love affairs and love letters to Kenneth Williams. More than that, this book is about love snatched from the corners and love harvested from three different landscapes: London, the Fenlands and Sweden. Garvey-Long’s voice is familiar to anyone who has been touched by love or seen it walk away or held it close in sweaty white sheets at night. His poems touch strange obsessions, urban myths of royalty meets Queen and what happens when we are finally allowed to be who we want to be. Purchase Information at:

Reading this felt more like I were sitting with a friend sharing secrets. Edward Garvey-Long writes in such a familial way that the reader cannot help but become enthralled. The only thing that could make this collection better is if it were in audio format, so that I could hear them the way they are meant to be heard.
