About James Minnis
This book spans 40 years my life. It was compiled in response to the curiosity and passion of Noah David Roberts, who found an early addition of my work, published in 1989, in a Kingston used bookshop. I had somewhat disappeared into my life and had stopped calling myself a poet around 2002 or 2003. Noah’s interest in my poetry also sparked the composition of a new book, “not,” selections of which are featured.
I’m a poet by compulsion, it seems, more so than by choice. Otherwise, I’m very happy being a ghost. I believe myself to be a lucky man.
