A man and world on the edge of breakdown.

A hurtling, disintegrating energy ... enthralling and compelling poetry, its repetitions crackling with drama and humour ... there's more flickering excitement, emotion, ingenuity and other hard to pin down special effects in this poetry than in most movies I've seen recently.’


Fulton is the arch-chronicler of Paisley life in all its forms. Fulton is the makar of Paisley’s bampots, and his tone is mockingly affectionate, as if he wouldn’t have it any other way.’
