Quantum Theory for Cats by Ian Stuart
After giving a voice to both of Schrödinger’s pets (grumpy, and largely conceptual), Ian Stuart shows us a touching scene after spontaneous tears in Waterstones, addresses some body parts which are not what they once were, then visits the lives (and deaths) of Shakespeare’s greatest characters after the final curtain fell.
Meanwhile, there are funerals and regrets, a doppelganger gives the author something to aspire to, and we hear stories from the homeless, the bus pass holders, and the unborn. Moving gracefully between humour and tragedy, this is a long-overdue introduction to an intriguing new
voice in UK poetry.
