Noon – At the Emptying of Dustbins

New book At the Emptying of Dustbins by Berlin poet Alistair Noon is now available from Oystercatcher Press.

Alistair Noon’s writing is characterised by a worldly intelligence, striking verbal alistair_noondexterity and a technical accomplishment by no means common in today’s poetry world. He is a writer to keep an eye on over the next few years.

And Alistair Noon is also known for his theorising on translocal writers, those who live outwith their original location and “go beyond simply writing about their [new] place of residence as an exotic Other”.

Mikhail the Domestically Detested

and George the Unfortunate Progenitor

have thawed in Iceland. Yugoslavia is at war.

Someone is strumming unplugged,

the sounds reeling down a stairwell.

Where’s the melancholy, alcoholic nose

of Belkin, with his squirrelish name

and ear for slang and news?
