‘…there are many unknowns. What to wear, who to hang out with, what to listen to, which substances should be taken, where can I go next, do we chose our diet, or does society and omnipotent marketing – what on earth to do for work? Fables is a mix of tales which grapples with these dilemmas. A mad, youthful dash for freedom, turns to analysis, judgement, learning and decision. It is not for the closed minded. It is bemused by the idea of normal life’.
‘…this work is firmly based in modern urban culture. However, it also incorporates a homage to the tradition of the literary sublime, with its respect for nature and its love for life. These contrasting themes are interplayed throughout the book; a relationship between hope and frustration. They encompasses life’s romantic reality, so, advice for the young in rap, may be reiterated through memories of love, and an erring spirit in more traditional rhyme’.
