The Trigger-Happiness is the second collection of poems by Paul Steffan Jones, after the notable success of his first collection Lull of the Bull. His work is heavily loaded with a kind of emotional violence that lurks just beneath the surface, as a constant threat to form and syntax, which are at times barely able to contain it, and thus the poems are in a condition of perpetual tension, which is left to the reader to deal with or resolve in whichever way she or he can. His work has been described as “civilian war poetry”.
Paul Steffan Jones was born in Cardigan, Wales in 1961. His first poetry collection, Lull of the Bull, was published by Starborn Books in 2010.
