This collection of poetry has in its title a literal location in the author's home-town, meeting-place of land and water, a facade of Regency splendour fronting hillsides of terraced houses spreading inland. But the public image of seafront shifts into the front-line of both political and personal struggle. This book of poetry uses humour and intelligence to challenge the apparent and tackles what lies beyond. The poems in this collection span Yorkshire, Cornwall, Leschaux and Africa as well as Brighton. By the author of "Gates to the City" and "The Islanders".
