About Beyond Our Kennel

 

This Hegley volume is mainly verse, occasionally prose and poetry, autobiographical in places, especially Luton. Embedded throughout, as in 'poem de terre', are homages to his father's French roots. It is also full of lyrical journeys by foot, train and bus, which culminate in Hegley's most ambitious poem to date: the lengthy narrative 'Beyond Our Kennel'. There are no cats.
