News from the Front

by D. M. Thomas and Sylvia Kantaris

"This is a collaborative work concerning a fictional encounter between a businessman and a Portuguese girl on holiday in London. It originated with a poem by Sylvia Kantaris based on a suggestion by D M Thomas and from that foundation, we each proceeded to explore their relationship in our own way, sending poems and drafts to one another as they were written. Each of us wrote sometimes from the point of view of the male character, sometimes of the female."
