Review of Peter Jaeger’s Midamble at Stride magazine

midamble photo

I have written a review of Peter Jaeger’s recent publication, Midamble (ifpthenq books, 2018) for the Stride magazine website edited by Rupert Loydell. HERE

Midamble is a walking book, not a book of guided walks, and not a book that discusses techniques or training for walking, but a walking book nonetheless. In two bands of text running continuously through the book we feel walking or we are offered records of sensations and experiences of walking, alongside rhythms and repetitions that echo walking.

The book is available HERE

new poems at Stride Magazine

Some new poems from a sequence in progress – ‘revised dictionary supplement’ – are up now at Rupert Loydell’s Stride Magazine site. The sequence was significantly edited during my residency at Arteles in Finland in November 2018. The texts began as a response to Bruno Munari’s ‘Supplement to the Italian Dictionary’ and explore questions of gesture, bodies, queerness, power and presentation.
