Book review


A collection of poems from the front-line of urban life, the cabs of lorries and the bluebell woods of mortality.


Oscar Sparrow was born in 1949 as the sonic boom of jets and babies began to draw a new world map of umbilical vapour trails.
He was brought up on cod liver oil and National Health orange juice. As the colour red leached its way out of the map of the British Empire,
Oscar attended a die-hard Church school designed to create noble savages to serve what was left of the savage Nobles.
The Eleven Plus exam revealed that he could not even count to eleven and he became a mechanic, labourer, truck driver, boxer and poet.
He read Wordsworth and Ford Cortina manuals in a lorry cab near both Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Eventually he found himself in London where he joined the Metropolitan Police. Car chases and riots followed but he did not take it personally.
He spent his spare time touring the Art galleries, singing Piaf and learning French and Italian. Eventually The Authorities fell for the con
and gave him a desk job in the Art department of Interpol London at Scotland Yard. Throughout all this time he was a would be poet,
short story writer and novelist.

To Oscar, poetry is the spoken word. A link to a free, downloadable, 45 minute MP3 audio book of these poems, read by the author,
is included in this publication.

Reviews:

  • 'Expertly Wrought and a Joy To Read!'
  • 'These poems cover many aspects of life and living, relationships,
    sorrows and joys. I really enjoyed them as they are understandable and
    accessible'
  • Forged from the authentic iron of experience, the author's tight, terse
    lines are rife with vivid imagery that appear culled from his daily
    life, yet are transformed into something mysterious, surprising, and
    utterly profound.'
