' My poor old heart, I' ve left its drawbridge down' Divorced, and perhaps a little bruised, Luke Wright journeys off the sunken roads of southern England and into himself, pursued by murderous swans, empty car seats, and his father' s skeleton clocks. Both brazen and elegiac, these poems pull on the ' tidy hem' of responsible existence, unravelling the banal frustrations of online outrage and ageing friends, and grasping at something ' beyond our squeaky comprehension' . Wright files through the shackles of cynicism to ask how can we let go without giving up. ' Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling, hypnotic and master of the emotional sucker-punch. The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is his best yet. ' - Carl Barat
' Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling, hypnotic and master of the emotional sucker-punch. The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is his best yet. ' - Carl Barat; "In Luke Wright' s long awaited third collection of deeply personal, elegiac but optimistic poems, he writes with such wit, wisdom and detailed observation about contemporary life online and on the road; in his head and in his Suffolk home. Wright' s images are unforgettable, his wry insights are original and his expertly crafted lines sing, gallop and throb with feeling" - James McDermott; ' This is a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal . . . A hurt man, taking stock in fresh words. ' - Ian Duhig
