  • Bomb Damage Maps ~ Rupert Loydell

    Rupert Loydell’s Bomb Damage Maps, explores West London’s elevated A40(M) Westway through a mixture of future history, psychogeography and elegy. Making use of graffiti, imaginary archaeology, reports about the Grenfell Tower fire, adolescent memories and middle-aged nostalgia, Loydell offers readers an urban post-mortem for the 21st Century.

    ‘At times hard-hitting, at times biting, Loydell’s poems pull beauty from the broken contexts of a rudderless society. It is poetry of rebellion and of urgency that underscores the need for poetry, art, conversation, and friendship in what is rapidly becoming an alienating, contextless world.’
