Book description

Robert Walton's career as a poet began promisingly, with a Welsh Arts Council Prize for his first book in 1978. However, a career in teaching intervened and it is only since his retirement from that profession in 2010, that he has been able to devote his considerable energies to his first vocation. His new book, Sax Burglar Blues,(Seren Books) is therefore only his second full collection. Packed with memory, incident, observation, opinion, humour, outrage and elegy, this collection benefits hugely from the author's years of experience. Subjects include: woodlice, jazz, teachers, grandparents, a canary who runs for President, Sisley's lovely painting of the Gower, the iconoclastic poet John Tripp, a night bus named after Dusty Springfield, the beauty of an Ash tree in spring, a Dad who loves Cardiff City, the austere beauty of a Bristol church, the annoying closure of bookshops and much more! Readers will find much to devour and discuss in Bob Walton's fine new poetry collection, Sax Burglar Blues. A founder member of the Bristol-based poetry group Spoke, Walton also performs his work all over Wales and the south west of the UK. Seren is pleased to help usher-in the revival of this wonderful talent.
