ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Inner Circle
By Henry Bell
From love songs and dreamscapes to rats trapped in manholes, The Inner Circle takes us on a kaleidoscopic tour of Glasgow, weaving through tenement mansions and demolished neighbourhoods, trade unions and union jacks. Like a Daytripper ticket in poetic form, this is a pamphlet for those in love with cities and everyone in them.
Henry Bell is a writer living on the Southside of Glasgow. He is the biographer of John Maclean, an editor of Gutter Magazine, and of A Bird is Not a Stone, a collection of Palestinian poetry in translation. In 2019 he received a New Writers Award for poetry from the Scottish Book Trust.
