NOTHING TO SAY represents a moment in literary time. It blends six full collections from writers across the literary spectrum with a catalogue of wonderfully diverse individual works and a series of one-off events and exhibitions that include readings at Magdalen Road Studios in Oxford and Three Minute Theatre in Manchester, ensemble performance at Stoke Newington Literary Festival, and a week-long exhibition in the basement gallery of the Albion Beatnik Bookstore in Oxford. For all its diversity, what lifts NOTHING TO SAY above the level of a set of poetry collections is the curatorial thread woven through it. These are collections, pieces, and performances chosen because they tackle head-on the glorious complexity of life. No piece is aridly intellectual, no piece one-dimensionally humorous or political or even beautiful. Each work addresses with one strand the myriad issues facing life in the 21st Century and with another a history of thought and culture stretching back into classical times. So from P A Levy’s experimental visual poetry and Andy Harrod’s multimedia and typographical experimentation through Errol McGlashan’s London Lonely, which has been received to rapturous receptions at poetry slams across the UK and Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s deliciously askance retellings of classical myths, each layer of NOTHING TO SAY contributes, like the planes of a cubist masterpiece, not only its own fully-realised presence but a new element of a whole that seeks to release everyone who reads it so they can experience their own lives in their own wonderful voices.
