House of Mouse by Prudence Chamberlain & SJ Fowler

houseo1

Discursive, playful, obscene and satirical, The House of Mouse is a collection of ten poetic collaborations written by British poets SJ Fowler and Prudence Chamberlain – each responding to a famed cartoon, each uncovering the bizarre overt and covert symbols and signs of these pervasive animations.

Dotted with original illustrations by contemporary artists like Lizzy Stewart and Duncan Marchbank, this unique collaborative collection aims to show that maybe the only thing stranger than corporate cartoon animals is avant-garde poetry.

To be launched as part of The Poetry School Camarade on July 17th 2016 at Rich Mix and The CapLet 1st year anniversary reading on August 10th at St Margaret’s House, both near Bethnal Green.

Out now on Knives Forks and Spoons.
