Not Dancing with Ingrid Pitt Book Release
To celebrate the release of Not Dancing with Ingrid Pitt, I've decided Not to have an official book launch. Instead I'm having an initimate little party at one of my favourite places, the Broadway cinema, Nottingham. Expect readings from the book, chat and free wine and nibbles.
Not Dancing with Ingrid Pitis an honest and personal collection capturing missed opportunities, those unstructured moments and nostalgic, half recalled memories which skulk at the periphery of an increasingly confusing current world state. Andrew Graves circumnavigates his modern worries and presents his own uniquely crafted narratives which utelise estranged family members, eccentric strangers and forgotten Hollywood cast offs in his fascinating line up of unconventional protagonists. This is a dark, funny and bewitching paean to the cult, disregarded and devalued, a chaotic and comforting monochrome tome inscribed with both hope, fear and a thinly veiled longing for something better.
‘I have seen the emotions his poetry engages in audiences and have observed his creative skill both in performance and on the page. In my experience, Andrew Graves is Nottinghamshire's best all round poet.’ – Henry Normal
