Black Mountain Poets 3

Two sisters, most unlikely career-criminal types, snip through a fence and attempt to steal a JCB. This ill-advised caper leads to even more bizarre happenings as they take a car belonging to two published beat poets, adopt their identities and make their way to a poetry festival in the Welsh Black Mountains. A far cry from Black Mountain College, North Carolina and the birth of the American post-war avant-garde era (William Carlos Williams, Robert Creeley, et al), here a Tesco receipt even provides humorous verse.

An unpolished gem.
