A Familiar Stranger

A Familiar Stranger

Autor: Matthew Williams

Genre: Poetry

View the book

This collection of contemporary poetry explores the challenges of modern living, from the social to the spiritual, from the political to the deeply personal.

Exploring love, loss, loneliness, mental health, and the search for meaning in suffering, along with more prosaic, day-to-day concerns like being stuck on the phone on hold, business doublespeak, and a heated encounter in a local bar, A Familiar Stranger contains something for everyone.

Praise for Matthew Williams:
"A talented writer with an important message"
"Funny, honest, brave"
"A true shining light of hope and guidance for us all"

Autor: J L Risdon

Genre: Biography

View the book

This is the true story of a man who refused to be bound by convention, if that meant accepting the status quo of the lower orders knowing their place, financial slavery, freedom of speech only for those in 'authority', and the unquestioning acceptance of unspeakable cruelty to animals. He was a valued and trusted lieutenant for Oswald Mosley, and later rose to become Secretary of the most prestigious animal welfare organisation in Britain: the National Anti-Vivisection Society. Yet he is not a household name: this book sets out to redress that omission.
