Breathe Through This If You Can – Kevin Acott

The first instalment in Kevin Acott’s chapbook travel series as he traverses the globe in search of adventure and literary inspiration. Breathe Through This If You Can is a chapbook full of longing, a poetic work whose heroes are missing. The trace of their lives live on in forgotten objects, in places vacated and the narratives that are captured in this chapbook.

Kevin Acott is a London-based model, cult singer, poet and astronaut. He’s currently having a few months off to wander about a bit, take photos, hang around, watch, be watched, talk, listen, write down everything everyone says to him, worry about injuries to Spurs players and eat cheese.

 This book is dedicated to the people of Enfield, Middlesex and Enfield, North Carolina.

5 star REVIEW from Mastabrowza
A breviloquent reasure
It’s small. It’s perfectly formed (in a bespoke, artisan style) and it’s like a compact “On The Road” (but with fewer words and many more pictures – so, in fact, not much like “On The Road” at all – apart from in spirit). So, despite – or perhaps because of – that, it’s a fantastic, petite (and very concise) “must have” item. Small on the outside and not quite as small on the inside.
