Nick Power says…
“The collection is a view of a city from a high vantage point over the river. Much of the work is set at night high up on construction cranes or warehouses and electricity substations. A recurring symbol in the book as seen on the cover, is the pharmacy crucifix. It crops up in a few of the pieces to represent how the cult of religion and the cult of drugs are essentially the same. The work concerns heightened emotion about love, death and hopelessness – but in a way a teenager would feel. Imagine a teenage paean to love and death, like S.E Hinton’s The Outsiders set in a Northwest England shit-town.”

Nick Power resides in Hoylake, Merseyside and is a member of the band The Coral. Holy Nowhere is his second collection of poetry.

The collection of poems, called Holy Nowhere build on Power’s previous work, Small Town Chase, which chronicled growing up in a provincial town in the north of England.
Liverpool Echo

“The whole thing segues into a hazy, at times boozy, hymn to the tumult of life. It’s hard not to get swept away.”
