Description - The Dice Cup by John Fuller

A new collection of prose poems, from one Chatto's finest poets

'In the dice cup, then, life becomes not a design but a wager; not an adventure but a game.'

Brimming with brio and brilliance, John Fuller's latest collection comprises exquisite philosophical arguments, dream visions, aphorisms, precise portraits, colourful fables and tableaux of life. But here too lie shadows- in departures and deteriorations, in a life balanced delicately between the known and the unknown.

Taken together, The Dice Cup unfolds like a Chinese box of observations; wit, humour, pathos and playfulness entwine to thrilling and thought-provoking effect. It is a late, great work from one of our finest poets.

Buy The Dice Cup by John Fuller from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
