Douglas Clark: Coatham, Benjamin Press, Bath

`Coatham', the book of childhood, is a return to the source, the place of inspiration from where the horsemen have thundered. In passing an attempt is made to face up to the reality of the Holocaust. But the book is rooted in the old Georgian house at Coatham Mundeville where the author grew up. The first five sections were written in Bath; the final section in Glasgow.

The cover graphics of my publications may be viewed. A current selection of my poems is available.
