Review

Achingly good ... an absolute pleasure.
-- Zinta Aistars (poet and editor, The Smoking Poet)

Dark, sexy and uncompromising - Harry Owen's poetry floodlights the secret corners of our relationships and personal histories. Unexpected imagery and fantastic observation are expressed with dry humour and a distinctive voice. -- Jo Bell (Co-ordinator, UK National Poetry Day)

Harry Owen crafts a moving collection of poetry in which he's willing to open up his own life to give us an honest look at happiness, love, complaisance, disappointment and redemption. Five Books of Marriage moves from being the song you put on when feeling melancholy, to the one you put on when the warmth returns ... The poems stay with you like a song. -- Ray Melnik (author of 'The Room')

Restrained, personal, ebullient and often harrowing verse, refracted through a variety of symbols, many from rural England.

Written about matters of the heart, never maudlin - steely virile unpretentious poetry that confronts the reader with all the universal human relationship stuff: eyeball to eyeball. -- John Ballam in 'Wordstock', 2 July 2008

Synopsis

'Dark, sexy and uncompromising - Harry Owen's poetry floodlights the secret corners of our relationships and personal histories. Unexpected imagery and fantastic observation are expressed with dry humour and a distinctive voice.' Jo Bell (Co-ordinator, National Poetry Day) Five Books of Marriage, Harry Owen's powerful third full collection, explores the course of a relationship from its early days through the sadness and pain of a marriage's breakdown and divorce to the finding again of a life and happiness beyond. It is hard. It is honest. It is real. This poetry is filled with anger and joy, confusion and understanding, despair and burning optimism. It is both intensely individual and entirely recognisable, Owen's finely crafted verse coaxing the universal from the personal in a celebration of life's possibilities. 'Achingly good ...an absolute pleasure.' Zinta Aistars (poet and editor, The Smoking Poet) 'The poems stay with you like a song.' Ray Melnik (novelist) www.harry-owen.co.uk www.myspace.com/harrythepoet
