'The audience must be open to every possible world. The greatness of art equals the distance it has travelled from the artist. All conflict happens along boundaries' from 'Usquebaugh', Howard Wright. "King of Country" is Howard Wright's first, much-anticipated, full-length poetry collection. Wright's keen, painters eye never fails to see the irony in the mundane, rendering found art out of the everyday in this wry and wily collection. Vivid, colourful and original, "King of Country" skilfully strikes the balance between personal experience, local character and universal truths.
