    I am so thrilled to get a poetry book that is utterly of this century. I think one of the reviewers said ‘fearless and percussive’ Absolutely right. A brilliant contribution to the amazing world of the internet in all its political acuity and generosity.

    Feedback from US author and New Yorker journo Tom Beller:

    In 1994 Kevin Barrington was the the sharpest tack among the motley assemblage of journalists, tourists, philanthropists, war junkies, entrepenurs (including the media barrons from the city’s rival newspapers, The Cambodia Daily and the Phnom Penh Post), tremulous newbie’s clutching copies of Granta, and Nate Thayer (who gets his own catagory) who assembled nightly at the FCC bar in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He wrote in the buttoned down style for Agence France Press and then held forth at night, unbuttoned. There was no one, at that time and place, who I found more entertaining. Like just about everyone in that place, he more or less vanished at some subsequent point. Almost died. And he’s now surfaced, alive, and has written a book of poems. Ecstatic, bitter, and a bit Irish sounding, to me, but maybe that’s because I can hear his voice. Completely worth checking out.
