This Room in the Sunlight: Collected Poems

by Bernard Kops - £9.99  David Paul Books (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780954848262 | ISBN 10: 0954848268

Bernard Kops is one of Britain's most celebrated and prolific authors. His new collection, This Room in the Sunlight includes over forty recent unpulished poems, together with most of his best poetry from his long writing years. His poems are witty, dark, poignant, mournful and celebratory. They cover his formative years in London's East End, his Jewish identity, drug addiction, early breakdown, growing older, and his redemption and joy within his family life. He has also written more than forty plays for stage, television and radio, nine novels and two autobiographies.

"His poems about nuclear war, about the Holocaust (in which many of his family perished) and more recently about his love for his wife Erica and his immediate family will be remembered for their shapely form and their personal force. He is a worthy literary descendant of the First World War poet Isaac Rosenberg"
(Michael Kustow)
"Kops evokes the real world - the world as we know and live and breathe it."
(Mike Leigh)
"Shalom Bomb was powerful, ecstatic...incomparably imaginative, committed and aware writing."
(Michael Horovitz)
