Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 908208130X, Paperback)This jewel-like chapbook has a long poem by English poet Clive Watkins interleaved with 12 full-color photo plates by Susan de Sola. These imaginative photos feature a small action-figure from the 1960s, oddly, sometimes playfully, out of context. The engaging poem reflects the photo-images in ways both humorous and serious...
" Little Blue Man strikes me as a beautifully original idea that appeals to the child in every perceptive adult." Anne Stevenson
"This chapbook is a real delight both to look at and read. The images are lovely, playful and poignant, making a mystery of the photographer's sense of play which the poet does not explain but rather explores and deepens. I especially enjoyed the places where Clive Watkins, the poet, teases the figure and action of Susan de Sola, the photographer, out of the picture as though de Sola were a goddess of the Little Blue People. There is, as Watkins characterizes it, an "unconsoling gaiety" throughout this little book, and a disproportionately large amount of charm." Meredith Bergmann
"steadfast pocket-deliverer, how did he fetch up here
translated into our world with its pitiless light,
the voluptuous gravity of its almost tangible dark?"
