Crumbs of Love - Hunter Steele SIGNED FIRST EDITION

£4.99

Product description

Signed first edition.

"With Crumbs of Love, Scottish
novelist Hunter Steele presents
ninety-five original song lyrics
which explore the whole spectrum
of human experience, from love
and loss to global issues such as
overpopulation and environmental
pollution.

In 'Beautiful Jane' Steele wryly
acknowledges that 'Looking back
now, l can hardly believe / How
someone like you could love someone
like me', while another song
(with an unexpected twist at the
end) wails 'l have no sympathy to
share/ lt's all been eaten out of me
/ By the rats in my soul. ' Dazzling,
witty', tender, poignant, you might
almost think these songs had been
written by Joni Mitchell or Leonard
Cohen.

Three appendices on 'Verse in
Education','Creating Lyrics' and
'Working with Music' give background
theory and practical advice
on using lyrics verse and music in
learning situations. Purchase of the
book includes the right to exploit
and perform the material for nonprofit-
making educational purposes.

There are also four short stories
dating from the same decades as
the lyrics (including 'The Philosopher's
Mother', about Schopenhauer's irritation at being constantly asked if he was the son of the
famous novelist Johanna Schopenhauer)."
