Your Own Steve Larkin Poetry Adventure by Steve Larkin
A book that connects to a world wide web of wordly possibilities.
Your Own Steve Larkin Poetry Adventure gives full access to a breathtaking breadth of poems, songs, and performances from this trailblazing artist through a collection of written word that links to a whole host of digital treats: from video and audio recordings of hilarious gig moments, to animated enhancements of rich poetic expression, to glorious climaxes reached from the front of a gypsy klezmer ska band, all collected and connected like a dungeons and dragons quest.
Three decades of work captured in one multimedia extravaganza of a book.
