ALL ISLAND NO SEA
All Island No Sea explores the upheaval of a house move, humorous commentary on the passing of time and the effect on our bodies, the healing power of nature, arrival of a newborn and love for family which invigorates life.
Former journalist Chris Campbell’s third book of poems, published by Alien Buddha Press, was written in Bristol and Nottingham and captures the essence of growing older, starting a family and everyday life in a different city.
WHITE EYE OF THE NEEDLE
White Eye of the Needle focuses on human – and sometimes animal – nature, special moments, relationships over time, and details the strength and beauty of those ties, when so much can feel out of our hands.
The pamphlet, published through The Choir Press, was put together in Nottingham and also includes pieces from the former journalist’s time in Bristol, London, Swansea, Glasgow and Gloucestershire, plus visits abroad including a honeymoon in Madagascar and trips to Tignes, France. The Eye of the Needle is a rock formation and landmark at the ski resort.
BREAD ROLLS AND DRESDEN
Chris' first pamphlet, Bread Rolls and Dresden, published in 2013 through The Choir Press, looks at themes of change, self-improvement and love with a light-hearted and darker take on status and society, covering situations we all can face. Find out more below.
