A poetry book from the British philanthropist and multi-millionaire who founded Dennis Publishing, publishers of magazine, including lad mag Maxim and weekly political magazine The Week
Multi-millionaires are not supposed to write poetry. It offends against natural justice. But following a life-threatening illness, Felix Dennis, the man behind the magazine publishing powerhouse responsible for The Week and Maxim found himself scribbling lines in the oddest situations - in business meetings, at social functions, on aeroplanes and even in his sleep.
“Seriously good stuff - great quality and memorability. At least one of these poems with be instantly anthologised.”
“A Glass Half Full blew me away. Dennis is a crouching tiger poised to wreak havoc among the bleating lambs of modern English poetry.”
“He writes like a man obsessed. If Waugh were still alive, he would fall on Dennis' verse with a glad cry of recognition and approval”
John Walsh, The Independent
“Marvellous stuff...the unpredictable Felis Dennis, long known for publishing other things, now bursts forth as a 21st Century Kipling”
