Poet Glyn Maxwell wakes up in a mysterious village one autumn day. He has no idea how he got there but he has a strange feeling there's a class to teach. And isn't that Keats wandering down the lane? Why not ask him to give a reading, do a Q and A, hit the pub with the students afterwards? Soon the whole of the autumn term stretches ahead, with Byron, the Brontës, the War Poets and many more all on their way to give readings in the humble village hall. In this one-of-a-kind novel, Maxwell takes writing exercises that he's used in real classes, and explores them with fictional students and major poets.
