Bennison Books is proud to publish The Human Hive by John Looker, a brilliant writer of highly original poetry.
We are invited to share an epic journey with him through time and across continents – and what a journey it is!
Spanning the globe
With economy and intelligence, he spans the globe and navigates our common history over millennia. Here we meet our ancient ancestors as they conjure with possibility; a humble vegetable grower rebelling against the tyranny of straight rows; and a dancer longing for a break and recognition at last. We are taken inside the confines of a submarine; join a businesswoman locked outside on a hotel balcony; and witness a high-profile ambassador’s very public fall from grace.
This is exquisitely wrought poetry documenting an extraordinary journey – from the timeless sweep of The Silk Road and the ‘lost Milky Way’ to a single tear in the eye of a 1950s housewife. John Looker is a gifted and accomplished poet and we could not ask for a better travelling companion.
