New Generation Publishing releases "Irritating The Silver Lining" by Dave Kurley

An eclectic new collection of poems and photographs

About the book:

They say every cloud has a silver lining.

This book of poems and photographs is the result of IRRITATING THE SILVER LINING with the grit of Dave Kurley's imagination for the last couple of years. In here you will find a veritable downpour of little pearls, perfectly formed. There is love of many different kinds. Misplaced anger. Grief and loss. Musings on anxiety and depression. The pandemic (inevitably). And there is open-mouthed wonder at the nature that surrounds us. Oh, and some of it's pretty funny, too.

Dave Kurley is constantly amazed by the fact he was born in Sheffield in 1962. He has been, at various times, an actor, a dry stone waller, a civil servant, a stand-up comedian, a sales rep, a singer, a pub manager, a playwright, a call centre operative and a podcaster. This list is neither exhaustive nor complete. Currently, he is a prize-winning poet and a conversational English tutor. These things are subject to change.

He is equally amazed that these days he lives in central Portugal, with his lovely wife Alison (this is not subject to change), and a lot of sunshine and butterflies. He enjoys performing his poetry, both live and online. You'll find him in Kurleybobs' Poetry Corner on Instagram or Facebook. Say hello when you get there. He'd like that.

Excerpt from "Irritating the Silver Lining":

"Seeding inchoate clouds

Until they darken and bloat

Become pleasingly plump plums

Salting the cumulonimbus

Until the contents calcify

And can no longer remain aloft

Irritating the silver lining

Until the sky weeps mother's pearls

Perfectly perfect, unblemished spheres

Precious hail for eager, grasping fingers

To pluck for punnets

From shattered windshields

Concave bonnets

And flayed allotments

After the beautiful glistening downpour."

"Irritating the Silver Lining" by Dave Kurley is currently available in paperback (ISBN #978-1803694276)

Available through all good booksellers including Amazon, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble
