The Swan Machine is my first collection of poems, twenty years in the making. Here's what's been said about the book:
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.'
