Eliot, Heaney, Auden, Larkin, Plath. Faber & Faber are famous the world over for publishing the works of the giants of poetry. And now with My Prefect Cousin they are proud to introduce to you the poems of cult poet Paul Hamilton.

Paul who? A reasonable question. Hamilton, once described by the Poetic Literary Review as 'a diabolical libertarian', has remained firmly under the public radar ever since he first started writing poetry in the early nineties. But now it is time for him to receive the recognition he deserves. Hamilton's cousin, Kevin Eldon, stand up comedian and stalwart of numerous television and radio comedies over the last twenty years, presents a fascinating insight into the life, work and times of a poet who stands in a class all of his own.

My Prefect Cousin charts the roller coaster ride of a life dedicated to verse; the emotional highs, the murky depths, with personal contributions from Hamilton that are often characterised by a brutal honesty that is not for the faint hearted. Or indeed the weak stomached.

My Prefect Cousin also contains for the very first time on the printed page 'Shadows of Reflections', the anthology of poetry Hamilton has failed for so long to find a publisher for. Until now.
