Doug Gregory / The Night is a Thousand Thoughts

  • Doug Gregory / The Night is a Thousand Thoughts
‘Doug Gregory is a people watcher with a keen eye and a sharp memory. His latest book is a poetic memoir, tinged with nostalgic pathos. There are some classic images and memories in it and I love the humour. The poems are honest, the language colloquial, as Gregory crafts candid and clever portraits of times past and of people he’s known. The poet captures ordinary humans and familiar times, often with wry humour. The public phone box, typing pool, rock music and hippy days are fondly portrayed. Let this baby boomer poet walk you back through his life to meet people like all the retired old boys wandering around with their little dogs - and Pat, who turns heads in a pizza bar saying “I really fancy the nine-inch Moroccan!”’ - Jude Aquilina
