Published to coincide with the release of a John Hegley CD, and yet another sell-out tour of the British Isles, "Uncut Confetti" is a stunning volume of new work - from the funny to the sad, the personal to the philosophical - by one of our best-loved and best-selling writers.
The book has a very strong autobiographical strand, and in particular some poignant reflections on John's father who would have been 100 this year.
There is also a running thread of animal-related poems, and the usual abundance of splendid drawings accompanied, unusually, by a photograph or two.
Production values for this remarkable book will be exceptional.
The cover will be printed directly onto board, and in a visual echo of its title the text will be printed on a range of coloured papers.
Perhaps John Hegley's most intimate and powerful work to date, "Uncut Confetti" is a book full of promise for everyone.
