This book, published to accompany a solo exhibition of work by Jim Lambie at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, includes images and writing about the works in the exhibition. But its primary focus is The Poetry Club, founded by the artist in April 2012. Drawing on both its archive and its spirit, the book contains visual material from evenings at the club, and some of the stories, songs and poems performed there. The writers and performers are people who, like Jim Lambie, look to their everyday reality for creative inspiration. They are, in his words, 'the people who give us our dreams'. Featuring poetry from: John Giorno, Richard Hell, Liz Lochhead and Gerard Malanga.
