Start Time

Siegfried Baber is a poet who isn’t afraid to ransack popular culture for bright and bold imagery. His work gives a fresh voice to famous faces, but also conjures up humorous new creations. When Love Came To The Cartoon Kid is a début poetry collection full of memorable lines delivered with sure-footed economy, and arrives with the confident swagger of one to watch. Baber’s surreal and distinctive imagination leads us through a motley of skewed tales from alternative worlds, inhabited by jilted Wonder Women, a Coke-swigging Lee Harvey Oswald, gurning cuckolds and gutted rabbits. A cocky indicator of even better things to come, Baber sets down his impressive marker: an Armitage for Generation Tweet.

Part of Poetry on the Paragon.
