1988 - A Poetic Diary of a Wrexham Author 

The latest book by Paul Clifton 

front cover of 1988 - A Poetic Diary of a Wrexham Author

Paul Clifton's third collection embarks on a poetic journey through the personal life of the local poet and author. Join him as he navigates his way through personal losses, discovering true love, and the thought-provoking mysteries of life that interest him. This anthology will take you on a voyage, as Paul's words transport you through his hometown of Wrexham and beyond, from his most significant moments to the smallest nuances. Experience his life,
as if you were there with him - as his story unfolds through the pages, the distant threat of Coronavirus looms on the horizon, adding an extra layer of relevance and meaning to his journey. An adventure awaits - crafted with observant sensitivity and honesty that has made Paul's poetry beloved.

"An important book of poems from someone who is at the forefront of organising poetry and literary events in Northeast Wales. Paul captures perfectly the unpredictability of our daily experience, as the river reminds him of life’s changeable drift. There are many real poetic gems in this collection. I warmly recommend to all lovers of poetry."

Life is an unpredictable journey, full of surprises, ups and downs, and unexpected twists and turns. We all have our own unique experiences and stories to tell, and for me writing has been a way to make sense of my journey, and if my words can touch others in a meaningful way, that is a gift beyond measure.

Reviews

" I think the book has resonance for young and old readers. Older readers will appreciate and remember some of the trials and tribulations of youth and younger readers will identify with the poems. I particularly liked The Companion having cats myself. there are also stories that intersperse which I really like a meritorious effort and a pleasant gentle read. To be recommended."
