'Do I have to talk about fear?
So much has already been said'
Sneak preview from Kaveh's poet's piece in the Spring Bulletin:
'My poems in Calling a Wolf a Wolf were little life-rafts - I'd gotten sober and I had no idea what to do with myself, my physical or psychic self. My whole adult life had been spent lurching from crisis to crisis; I had no relationship to a living that wasn't predicated on the pursuit of narcotic experience. The poems became a place to put myself for hours, days, weeks in a row'
Calling A Wolf a Wolf is available to pre-order here with 25% off for PBS Members. Charter Members will get their copy in the Spring mail-out alongside the Spring Bulletin magazine, Choice and all four Recommendation books!
