Sunsets & Kites: Scatterings of dark and light in poems, songs and essays
“Flloyd’s book is a blockbuster, get in there for a nice present or something to cuddle up with these dark winter months, I guarantee this talented lady will not disappoint…”Th’Owd Chap.
Aussie-born, Liverpool-based actress, singer-songwriter and performance poet Flloyd (with 2 Ells) Kennedy has lived, trained, worked and performed in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, Nigeria, Russia, USA and England.
Her poems, songs and stories gather together in much the same way as she has lived her life – moving from place to place when the need arises, stopping to take note of the chaos, the kindness and the absurdity around her.
Flloyd Kennedy draws upon her personal experience of life, not as memoir but as a means of making some kind of sense of life in general. Whether she’s celebrating the Singing Beetle, analysing the Anatomy of Despair, Dreaming of a fantasy lover or exposing the nonsense of Austerity, Flloyd uses wry wit and a philosophical turn to reveal the world in a different, scattered light.
