Inextinguishable by James Wood


This volume consists of thirteen poems and responses to my work by artists associated with the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). The poems were selected by Jane McKie, Editor at The Knucker Press and a prize-winning poet. It was launched in 2008 with an exhibition in parallel at the Cube gallery in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket.

Copies of this volume will be signed and may be dedicated on request.

From the Reviews:

…”yet this (‘Inextinguishable’) spare and beautiful book does not brood. Instead, it sings with the colour of life. Details of the everyday settle jewel-like, sparkling against the flat grey of loss … Wood gently urges his listeners to notice small details, especially those signposts of memory, planted imperfectly on the border between life and death”.
– Sphinx Magazine

“Audacious, smart, written in a style so clean and disarming…this collection hums with an accomplished and intelligent poetic vision.”
– Jake Kennedy, The Eyewear Review (UK/Canada, 2009)
