Book launch “The Noise of Everything at Once”
January 31, 2017 @ 18:00 - 20:30
The Noise of Everything at Once by Chris Burke
Book launch at the Brooklyn Bar Paris:
An office cleaner dreams of tomorrow’s dust, Columbo investigates his own death and Robespierre plays Pac-Man as the guillotine looms – just a few of the strange worlds conjured up in Chris Burke’s debut poetry collection ‘The Noise of Everything at Once’.
Bold, playful and darkly humorous, the poems within cover sweeping ground with one guiding principle: to never be boring. Meet the fading comedy duo harbouring old grudges, the dog writing a play about his missing mother and blues legend Blind Willie Johnson in outer space.
A UK National Poetry Competition longlistee, Chris Burke is thrilled to be launching his collection at the Brooklyn Bar and will read a selection of pieces on a welcoming evening of poetry and conviviality. Come along from 6pm onwards!
