The Dead Queen of Bohemia is a journey through a life lived on the edge. With a poetic style influenced by Gertrude Stein and William Burroughs, this collection is woven with surrealistic imagery that is both unflinching and dislocating.

Fagan's poetry is raw and tough yet beautiful and tender and with themes of loss and recovery, hope and defiance, represents a clarion call from a self-taught poet who started writing at the age of seven and so far has not stopped. The Dead Queen of Bohemia documents the progression of a voice and a life written over the last twenty years. It opens with Jenni's most recent work and includes her previous two collections, both now out of print.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'full of desire and guitars and witches' - Sunday Herald 'if you like Bukowski and the Beats, you'll get somewhere close to the subject matter and style, both of which are pleasingly uncompromising. 'The Rocks, the Crags & the Sun-Worm' [selected] captures something of her anarchic spirit' - Scotsman
