Hard Rain: Our Headlong Collision with Nature

Bob Dylan's poem-song of 1962, written at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, is often thought to be a protest song about nuclear war. But Dylan refuted this in an interview saying It's not atomic rain, it's not fallout rain... I [just] mean some sort of end that's just got to happen. And photographer Mark Edwards shows us a new ending in no uncertain terms with his piercing, disturbing images of the ghastlier aspects of human experience in a damaged environment. Part of the poetry's wonder is that it can be interpreted in so many ways, including as a protest against racism, but it really does seem to speak very clearly of environmental damages. More importantly it expresses so beautifully the rage and pain we must all feel at all kinds of injustice and wanton destruction, and in the early 21st century, humanity's bashing of the planet's natural resources is forward in our minds

About the author (2009)

Mark writes psychological thrillers. He loves stories in which scary things happen to ordinary people and is inspired by writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell, Ian McEwan, Val McDermid, and Donna Tartt. Mark is now a full time writer. Before that, he once picked broad beans, answered complaint calls for a rail company, taught English in Japan, and worked as a marketing director. Mark co-published a series of crime novels with Louise Voss. The Magpies, his first solo, topped the UK Kindle charts for three months when it first released. Since its success, the novel has been re-edited and published by Thomas & Mercer. Mark is now writing his next spine-tingling thriller to be published in late 2014. He lives in England with his girlfriend, their three children, and a ginger cat.
