“Fragments” by F. Philip Holland
A new ‘Collection’ of poetry, prose and words entitled
“Fragments”, by Derbyshire poet, F. Philip Holland, will be launched on
Saturday, 11th July at the 2015 Buxton Festival Literary Series.
This will be straight after “Lend me your ears.” a one-hour reading of his poems by Philip at 9.00 a.m. in The Old Clubhouse, Buxton.
His new book contains an eclectic mix of free and rhyming verse, sonnets, ballads, prose and writing, covering a kaleidoscope of subjects from: humpback whales to nuthatches, the harbour at Carthage to Dutch windmills, Kinder Scout to The Caribbean and Knee Replacement to Tattoo Parlours.
Containing themes of love, loss, nature, travel, history, seasons, music, terrorism, humour and some Derbyshire dialect, Philip’s eighth book is one not to be missed.
This new collection, a quality ‘limited edition’ of only 100 copies, has been illustrated by Pat Holland, the poet’s wife. “Fragments” is being released by ‘Five-Bar-Gate Publishing’, and is priced at £10.00.
