David Briggs, award-winning author of the mesmerising poetry collection The Method Men, has returned with his latest reflections in Rain Rider.

A balance between the metaphorical and the literal, the fantastic and the mundane, Rain Rider sweeps us through a mass of unique landscapes, mirrors and mazes. In returning sequences David presents us with archetypes that lurk in the darkest recesses of the human mind: as Jacob Polley says, ‘you’re as likely to meet the Devil as the Fool in poem after glittering poem’, and each page seethes with intellectual curiosity and unabashed morality.

Come and meet David to celebrate the publication of this astonishing collection of poetry, with readings from the author himself.
