This collection, laid down from many of the writer’s experiences, stretches back through several decades. Ballet and business, prison and performance, college and comedy, each have a part in the life and words gathered for this, his first collection. However, examples of his writing are scattered across the Internet and more than a handful of charity anthologies as well as in an Annual of a national magazine. He has also run a Sci-Fi group and edited its magazine. Al Barz has performed many poems, often with his keyboard or self-composed backing tracks, at many venues across the West Midlands and beyond. He has headlined at various gigs, won a poetry slam, been part of a singing duo and a poetry quartet, organised large and small music and poetry events, and acted on over a dozen stages across the country as well as a film and a TV ad.
Published by Burdizzo Bards in association with nOthing BOOKS, Cacophony of Stardust is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle format.
