The Swan Machine is the first collection from Dean Parkin.
Dean Parkin writes poems of true wit, poems in repeated denial of their own tendernesses, poems full of mischief, laughter, tears and, most of all, poems of a generous and garrulous heart.'
'There are moving, wistful, jubilant poems which surprise on every page. Hopeful, funny and wry, The Swan Machine is a great read.'
'An exuberantly eccentric imagination.'
'This is an outstanding book - long overdue, and all the richer for it. The Swan Machine is witty, unguarded, spirited and tender.'
