Geoff Akers is also the author of Beating for Light, a fictionalised account of the tragically short life of the First World War poet Isaac Rosenberg. Much of the novel’s factual information is drawn from the four excellent biographies of Isaac Rosenberg. The author therefore gratefully acknowledges: Journey To The Trenches by Joseph Cohen, A Half Used Life by Jean Liddiard, Isaac Rosenberg: Poet And Painter by Jean Moorcroft Wilson, God Made Blind by Deborah Maccoby.
Gratitude is also expressed to Ian Parsons for his introduction and notes to The Collected Works Of Isaac Rosenberg published by the New York Oxford University Press.
