More About the Author

Felix Dennis was imprisoned in 1971 as co-editor of OZ magazine. After his acquittal on appeal, he founded his own magazine publishing company in 1973 and made millions with the sale of Personal Computer World and MacUser in the mid-eighties. Today, Dennis Publishing remains a privately owned company with headquarters in London and New York City. Titles include The Week, Auto Express, Computer Shopper and Maxim. The annual Sunday Times Rich List estimates that Felix Dennis is the 65th richest individual in the UK. Following a life-threatening illness, his first collection of poetry, A Glass Half Full was published by Hutchinson and the second, Lone Wolf, in 2004. His third collection, When Jack Sued Jill, was published by Ebury Press in November 2006. His other interests include planting trees and he divides his time between homes in Warwickshire, London, New York, Connecticut and the Caribbean island of Mustique.

Review

"Seriously good stuff - great quality and memorability. At least one of these poems with be instantly anthologised." (Melvyn Bragg)

"A Glass Half Full blew me away. Dennis is a crouching tiger poised to wreak havoc among the bleating lambs of modern English poetry." (Mick Farren)

"He writes like a man obsessed. If Waugh were still alive, he would fall on Dennis' verse with a glad cry of recognition and approval" (John Walsh, The Independent)

"Marvellous stuff...the unpredictable Felis Dennis, long known for publishing other things, now bursts forth as a 21st Century Kipling" (Tom Wolfe) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is the way poetry should be. Easy to read and absorb,
with plenty of sharp observation and a wicked sense of humour.
It's great to find a poet who is actually writing to
entertain his readers.
I hope that Mr. Dennis' poetry moves swiftly into school
national curriculums and that future poets will learn
from his style. This is the sort of book that can make
poetry popular again.

Format: Paperback
The Elvis Presley of poetry shuck the foundation of verse, bringing the wonder of word too thousands of every-day folk, each poem making you pause and ponder. ..like Elvis said; the wonder of you...

Felix gives us funny, sad, naughty and outrageously honest views on life through his verse. Totally readable and the spoken word CD included is a massive bonus, which you'll listen to time and again.
