Poetry, paperback, 128 pages, from Dostoyevsky Wannabe.
During the Cold War, the CIA developed a simple unwritten set of rules intended to keep their operatives safe whilst conducting espionage operations in the former Soviet Union.
Richard Brammer's fifth book misappropriates these rules and uses them to hold together a mixture of borrowed registers (Mills and Boon romance literature, scientific jargon, re-purposed fashion spread captions) to form a fractured anti-prose/poetry.
Richard Brammer was born in 1975 in the UK. He remembers the Cold War and he remembers what is was like when the Cold War was over.
