BOOK REVIEWS: THE BEST OF A BAD SITUATION AND PWR VOL



THE BEST OF A BAD SITUATION BY JAMIE THRASIVOUSLOU

It is immediately evident reading The Best of a Bad Situation that Jamie Thrasivoulou is a very passionate individual, and a proud resident of his native Derby. This emotional rollercoaster of a poetry collection is a visceral and hard-hitting showcase Jamie's work; tackling issues ranging from drug and alcohol abuse and racism to living and surviving in austerity Britain. To capture the intensity of his live performances on the page is no easy task, but Jamie has pulled it off with flying colours. This is certainly not a collection for the faint-hearted, but one you'd be foolish to miss out on. Grab one now from Silhouette Press.



PWR VOL BY NICK SCANDY, AARON ZONKA AND MINI AND THE BEAR

PWR VOL is a series of weird and wonderful philosophical vignettes, loosely stitched together by various threads and themes that run throughout. Reading this book, no *experiencing* this book, was like watching Richard Linklater's Waking Life, if it had had a pounding punk rock soundtrack. PWR VOL may not be everybody's cup of tea, and will likely split opinion, but one thing is for sure, you have definitely never read anything like it before! Buy one from B.O.S.S Underground Press.
