Lake Shore Drive by John Wilkinson
Book DescriptionLake Shore Drive is John Wilkinson's most public, openly political and expansive book. By contrast with the baroque architectonics of his last Salt book, Contrivances, Lake Shore Drive is wide-ranging and variously vernacular in both scope and form, en route between New York City, Damascus, East London and the Welsh, Cornish and Indiana shorelines. Four poem clusters provide the book's binding force in asphalt and marram grass, protein receptor sites and the remembrance of corrupt data. Among these are interwoven short poems as compressed as expletives, and technicolor desertscapes, along with a gaggle of geese and dollops of general balm. This book will ensure that John Wilkinson's poetry becomes the resort of a much extended readership.

Schedule of Unrest selects from John Wilkinson's collections of poetry published from 1974 to 2008. A growing readership is seeking ways into an impassioned and beautiful body of writing. The unfamiliarity of its surfaces and soundscapes have too long delayed its appreciation.
Reckitt's Blue, Paperback (January 2013)» View all books by John Wilkinson
An iconic work of Western art, Fragonard's "L'escarpolette", or "The Swing", is often reproduced, and its foreground image of a young woman losing her slipper midswing is widely familiar. This book explores that scene in a long poem that engages with the image of the flying slipper, and presents two other sequences of poems based on paintings.
