The Blink that Killed the Eye
Jacaranda Books Art Music
The Blink That Killed the Eye is a stunningly crafted debut short story collection, taking a poetic torch to the shadows of daily life - illuminating the characters, situations, emotions and dilemmas that pour into even the most ordinary existences. From building sites to prison cells; from the birth of love to the last moments of breath - Anthony Anaxagorou navigates expertly through the tangled nets of invisibility, desperation and power to bring us time-defining tales of tragedy and hope; commenting on the irony of our shrinking capacity to really see ourselves or each other in a world increasingly defined by appearances and dangerous preconceptions.
Anthony Anaxagorou is a poet, playwright and prose writer from North London. His poetry has appeared on BBC Youth Nation, BBC Newsnight, the British Urban Film Awards, and performed by Cirque du Soleil. He teaches in schools and colleges around London & works closely with educational organizations including First Story, WISDM and The Hip-Hop Shakespeare Company. He is co-founder and curator of the popular poetry and music night Outspoken London.
