Panoramic Lounge Bar
John Stammers's collection is witty, touching and clever - with brilliant images where love scenes are laced with irony and the details of contemporary life. He writes about irrelevant vampires living out their days on the sea front at Eastbourne; about flowers with 'fine pointed petals like scalpels' and is absolutely brilliant on music. His writing is vivid and assured.
