When To Kipple #poetry #booklaunch

One of the most assiduous supporters in my bloggy world is the delightful Willow Willers who I’ve met several times at bashs in London and Birmingham. Her energy and enthusiasm for other bloggers is extraordinary and it was no surprise when she kindly offered a tea and cake conversation on her blog to help the launch of my book of poetry, The Sincerest Form Of Poetry.

If you click on the link below you will be taken straight into the tea and cakes; and in amongst the crumbs you’ll find out how Rudyard Kipling set me on my path to reinterpretation of many great English language poems.


And while you’re there, stay a while and enjoy her eclectic and constantly evolving blog

Kipling was one of dad’s favourite poems and he would re-read many. Indeed as families do, he coined the verb ‘to Kipple’ meaning to read a Kipling poem, if ever he felt the need to explain why he’d been absent from some domestic duty

‘Sorry, darling, I was just Kipling’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
