Published in a special signed limited edition of 500 copies to celebrate the author's 80th birthday, John Fuller's full-length narrative poem is resonant celebration of life and the things we leave behind.

‘When does a poem end?’

In this rambunctious romp of a narrative poem, John Fuller taps out the rhythms of life against the riddle of time: from his story of opportunistic art-dealer Old Billy Emerald and his fabled Shakespeare manuscript, to the ghosts of great poets and remembrances of old friends.

The Bone Flowers is a resonant celebration of the things we leave behind – in art, music and poetry – as well as a stirring memento mori to gather our rosebuds while we may.
