Book Description

Following in the footsteps of A Glass Half Full, Lone Wolf and When Jack Sued Jill, Homeless In My Heart - Felix Dennis's long-awaited new collection of verse - is 'the story of a fool whose life was saved by poetry'.

Felix Dennis's life has been a long series of unlikely events: incarceration by the British government in 1971 following the longest conspiracy trial in British history; recording a chart single with John Lennon; co-authoring Muhammad Ali's first biography; becoming one of the richest individuals in Britain; launching one of the most successful media brands in the world; falling into crack cocaine addiction; beginning the task of planting a huge native broad-leaf forest in the Heart of England; salvaging the wreckage of a life dedicated to hedonism; and, lastly, and most surprisingly of all, discovering that he could write the kind of poetry that people wanted to read and to hear.

Now, with the publication of Homeless In My Heart, Felix Dennis's extraordinary talents have come to fruition - from ironic tales of darkness and savagery to hymns of praise for the glories of nature. Homeless In My Heart fulfils the promise predicted by the author and critic Tom Wolfe, who has called Dennis 'a 21st-century Kipling [whose poetry] rollicks and rolls with rhyme, meter and melody'.

An all-new collection of startlingly original verse by acclaimed multimillionaire publisher poet, Felix Dennis

About the Author

Felix Dennis was imprisoned in 1971 as co-editor of OZ magazine.

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 in 2002. Two further collections followed in 2004 and 2006, Lone Wolf and When Jack Sued Jill. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Homeless In my Heart 24 Mar. 2009
Format:Paperback
After a great night out at his 'Did I Mention The Free Wine Tour?' I ordered several of his poetry books including Homeless In my Heart. The CD's of him reading his own poems that come with each book continue to entertain me on many long car journeys. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A real poet .... 8 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
Felix Dennis is an amazing character - a man with the head of a businessman and the heart of a poet. A millionaire who uses a fortune to recreate forests! A perfect character to break down stereotypes! This is the book for those of us who value poetry for its ability to articulate in a few beautiful words those complex thoughts that whirl around inside your head. The poems are short and beautiful and use real life events to illustrate complex points. And this is from a man who knows what real life is! Don't expect anything sentimental here - Dennis takes life and its realities head on and celibrates it for what it is - a short passing moment with the potential for incredible beauty or suffering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homeless in My Heart by Felix Dennis 21 Mar. 2011
By Mary
Format:Paperback
I have requested this book today. I first read it as a library book. It is so brilliant I need one to keep by me. This man is a poetical genius. He grabs and pulls you in to engage your interest from the first word. He conjures up words on any subject from the depth of his being. A master of his craft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky! 4 Jun. 2014
By Elly H
Format:Paperback
This was my first Felix Dennis poetry book. I bought it because the title was appealed. I love his poetry, witty, naughty, funny, dark, light he covers unusual topics and has a quirky way of looking at life. The CD is also brilliant having him read his poetry to you. Now that's a bit special. He's got a soft cockney voice that's very soothing. I'd recommend this to those who love poetry, but also those who don't read much; it may open your mind!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sifting for Gold 9 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure if Felix is a great poet or not. Mind you, I'm not sure if anyone is a great poet. I just know that I know what I like, and if I can read a collection of poems and find maybe three that stick in my mind then it is worth having and returning to. This collection passes that test.

For those who remember the 'OZ' trial of the 70's - this book is worth purchasing if only to read 'Old Bailey' however, you will devour the rest of the content too. Beautifully illustrated and as with all his books of verse, you get the bonus of his spoken word CD.
