Modern Confessional Poetry from the City of Leeds.
“Mills’ poetry runs wild with his obsession with the minutiae of human life, observation and lost love.
We get a tour of Leeds pubs, London bedsits and lazy sofas on a Sunday.
The pantomime season is demystified and seen through a longing lens. Romantic and abundant with desire and a strong loyalty to the past.
Often humorous, but also poignant - his style is reaching an annihilating maturity and a sense of dynamism.
Graphic, sensual and vivid, the poetry is gripping and addictive. Confused masculinities, secrets from the past merge with beautiful female creatures who are seductively causing unrest.”
This edition features Photographs of Leeds and Yorkshire taken by the author.
