Chris McCully


Wild trout ­Well, it's usually been fun but after fifteen years this website is going to go off-line in autumn (October) 2020. Many thanks to those who have read and taken an interest. You'll encounter listings of and some links to Chris's work in the following pages. There is more work to come - several book-length projects have been completed in 2020 - but after October you'll find the new stuff in different fora and contexts. Thanks again.


Academic work and other prose
All Chris's books - a chronological list

"To begin this collection with such a methodical assertion of futility is inspired…. A terrifyingly reasonable exploration…. This unsettling triple-threat of the 'Poetic You' is used to irreproachable engaging effect in the collection, and ensured I read the thing in one sitting….Whilst I enjoyed the lyrical exuberance of 'Polder' and the engaging demi-dialogue of 'Torquatus', it is 'Masterpieces' which shows McCully at his best….McCully has a real gift for embracing the impositions we make when attempting to engage with a piece of art ….Depth and humanity…. A beguiling book…." - Phil Brown, reviewing Polder (2009) in Stride Magazine
