extract from Sahara

is an account in verse of a journey by four intrepid travellers – including George – through the interior of Libya to Akakus, in search of ancient rock drawings.

Skilfully composed stanzas combine traditional form with modern sensibility, literary allusion and descriptions of the Libyan desert in an absorbing fast-moving narrative.

These poems are enhanced by the beautiful pen and ink drawings of Emily Johns whose work at the moment is touring in Wales. She is also the new editor of Peace News.

Adrian Brown turned to writing satirical poetry and nonsense verse after he retired. He was Head of Television Drama at Channel 4, a script writer and director of many television programmes. He won an international Emmy in performing arts
