Book: Afterburner (Peter Porter)

Cover image


Author: Peter Porter
Publisher: Picador

Following the terrific success of Max is Missing, Peter Porter has produced another book of great power and erudition. Afterburner—the device that provides the extra thrust to a turbojet—is a thoroughly appropriate title for this fuel-injected work. From his lengthening perspective and high vantage, no one is better placed than Porter to give these subtle meditations on art, life and the social mores—and few could manage them with such compassion and humor. Afterburner will further enhance his reputation as one of the finest poets writing in English today.
