Glastonbury 2013 eBooks
by Kate Fox, Alfie Crow
'I’ve never danced like Bryan Ferry ... and I’ve never been to Glastonbury.' [See blurb for buying links]
Legendary northern poet Kate Fox was Poet in Residence at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival, held between Wednesday 26th and Sunday 30th June. Determined to make the most of her time, Kate produced two new books during the festival, which Valley Press was delighted to digitally publish immediately, on Glastonbury 2013's final day.
The first book, Jagger's Yurt, contains all twelve poems Kate produced during the festival as part of her residency – according to Kate this is 'reportage in poetry', collected by 'roving the festival searching out stanzas'. The perfect festival souvenir, this book will allow you to relive it all; whether you were stood in a field watching the Stones, or watching on the telly at home.
Then we have The Glasto Code, co-written with thriller writer (and fellow performance poet) Alfie Crow. A funny, fast novel of suspense and intrigue, it of course bears no relationship to anything written by Dan Brown – except for a long hidden code, a pyramid, and something very, very important that needs to be found.
"Something is buried in a field in Glastonbury, and the words of a dying prisoner send an out-of-his-depth young priest – and the festival's Poet in Residence – on a race against time to crack the code and find the secret. But they're not alone..."
Mostly written during the festival itself, the book is the first in a series of 'Makin News' novellas, to be produced and published during real live events, featuring real live people. Are you in it? Were you there? If you weren't, this novella will make you wish you had been.
