About Books:

Title: The Assassination Museum
Author: Andy Jackson

Description: For his debut collection, Andy Jackson has assembled a line-up of characters and moments discovered in the dark corners of popular culture and modern lifestyles. Woodstock and Dallas jostle for place with the local high street and recent tabloid footnotes. Jackson writes with an energy and pace which drives poems of almost disconcerting range and scope, and his firm grasp of this material allows oddball voices to go off on their own tangents before he reels them in again. Writing about them - the laconic and the loitering, the damned as well as the dead - his word choice is scalpel sharp. Also running through the collection is a strain of surreal fun, a lively enjoyment of nonsense which surfaces from time to time, and occasional more personal poems slow the pace down nicely to a perfect finish. - Eleanor Livingstone

  1. Hello Maurice and thanks for posting this to your blog. How did you come to pick my book out to blog? Regards, Andy

  2. Hi Andy,

    Your collection caught my eye because of it's striking cover. Then I read the promo material and knew I had to showcase it. Hope the feature gets you some additional sales!

  3. P.S.

    Andy, I think I found Red Squirrel by way of Tom Kelly who's with the same publishing company. He'd sent me a copy of his latest collection and I'd went online, found the website, then taken a look for any other interesting work, especially debut work, and I saw yours.

    Hope you continue to read CSR!
