RM:

1 – How did your first book change your life? How does your most recent work compare to your previous? How does it feel different?

AB:

After writing poems for over ten years, it was tremendous relief to get a chunk of it off my computer, and into people’s hands, with Making Bones Walk. The new stuff compares to the old stuff in that I still favour purpose and clarity, and differs in that it’s getting a little nuttier. There was a little of that in the first book, in poems like “Bride of Frankenstein”, but there will be more in the second – expect poems about George Orwell robots.
