“Dark, moody and gritty tales of life, love and loss. Madness and beauty rolled into one.”
Review by Dymocks, Adelaide

“This book, It was beautiful. Beautiful because it made me laugh and because it even made me cry. At times I thought some of them must have been written about me they hit that close to home. It was honest. At some points I would read a page and have to sit there just thinking about what was written, the string of words that had stopped me in my tracks. I do not usually read books such as this but made an exception. For me it was hard to read, because I’m usually a start to finish story kind of reader, alas I did enjoy it.”

Like the Dog I Am is the second poetry and writing collection by Sean King. Published in 2012 by Blunt Trauma Press.

“When he told me he needed a fountain pen, I dismissed it as normal, what normal passes for anyhow in this world we inhabit. And then, later, I thought, hold on, he’s going to stick that nib into his vein and write a book out of his own blood. A few moments of panic and then normality grabbed me again, bit me hard on the cheek. I could see him doing it too, hunched over his desk, the one with the cartridges on it, madly scribbling verse in his own métier. Later, compelled by gnawing cold and dead bang fusion induced by god’s nectar, I called. He mumbled something, late-night obscenities -caffeine-inspired rage of the insomniac. I let it go at that, all was well in our small page of the global book. He rang me later, as the moon bowed out and the big yellow ball gripped folk’s throats again. Here, it’s finished. He told me coldly. How could he write a poetry book in . . . I cut myself short, Hank had done it once out of fear, fear of losing the artery of creation. I read it, went to a bar and ordered tequila. I was after the lime and salt, something to mask the sting his words had left in my mouth. He wrote this book for you because you are the axis. I don’t know who you are, but I know who he is, he’s a dog, a dog that roams the night looking for tomorrow. When he told me he needed a fountain pen, I knew why, I just didn’t know he’d slaughter language with it.” – Teri Louise Kelly
