Dom Gabrielli is one of the most exciting contemporary poets I know. Whilst attentive to form, his poetic content overwhelms leaving the reader both smitten with its beauty and pondering its thoughtfullness. Emotion will overhwhelm you in the silence of your reading. A wonderful book to be read in intimate moments! I recommend 'The Parallel Body' to anyone who still believes in poetry.show more

A second fascinating collaboration by Dom Gabrielli, the poet, and his brother Piers Faccini, the painter. The life of the spirit as it is lived in its most essential form is the subject of The Parallel Body. Gabrielli's words ask us to give up the false myths of our civilisation for a wholly new recognition of what beauty and love might be. It is a work of discovery and, consequently, identification, both with the universal and the other. Confessedly writing at an unholy pace, Gabrielli grabs the moment and stamps its essence onto the page. He conquers time by simply obliterating it. Piers Faccini's images have this same disconcerting immediacy. His drawings are uncorrupted by academic conditioning and apparently without the slightest yearning for approval or recognition. The Parallel Body is a work of integrity.show more
