Book Review: KEITH DERSLEY




BEYOND THE 
RED BRICK STREETS 


Book Review of: 
‘ALL THE RED BRICK STREETS’ 
by KEITH DERSLEY 
www.derzville.com ISBN-978-1090-969187. 102pp 

Memory is the currency we share. The coins we swap between us. When sixteen-year-old Keith stands ‘at the top of Bishop’s Hill,’ from where he can look down on ‘the whole of Ipswich’, which ‘was my domain,’ he’s doing something we’ve all done. Not Ipswich, maybe. Other cities. Other locations. But the same oceanic oneness with our time and space. The past is a place of lemonade days, as warm as eggs. A time where we read 1950s Western Annuals instead of internet posts. And each memory springs an answer. Like exchanging anecdotes in an ongoing dialogue. Remember when we…? Yes, but what about…? The red brick streets are also a yellow brick road through the scally tales of temporal conundrum. These are easily accessible poems that ‘take words for a walk’, not arsey-versey verse, but poems that flow with stories about athletes, Lotharios, charlatans and polymaths. And those who never made it through. Those who persist only in the memory of lost Pop songs. We watch trash-TV, we scuff with little journals and Creative Writing scribbling lads, we read Beatnik magazines, William Wantling, a biography of Picasso, Jim Burns... crammed into over six feet of shelving. Poems are legal tender throughout the world. Even when there’s the taunting voice that says ‘let’s stay young reading comics and eating sweets.’

Did you realize there is a 12 word phrase you can say to your partner... that will induce intense feelings of love and instinctual attraction for you deep inside his chest?

Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, cherish and look after you with his entire heart...

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
