A collection of poetry, short stories, and portraits from his recent exhibition – a trifecta of a book!

“Words that glow, that frighten, that burn, that caress. Basil Eliades takes us on an astonishing voyage. We don’t know the destination, even when we get there, but the journey is brilliant, visiting places we have never imagined.”
John Marsden

“50IV is a collection of poetry about the ephemeral nature of life, of pain, about how we learn, grow, become mindful/present/enlightened, and above all, about love. No matter how much we’ve severed, sutured, eluded and deconstructed, love is always transformative. Once again, Eliades has created a multifarious collection of poetry and art that is full of pathos, humour, rich visual imagery, and illumination.”
Magdalena Ball – The Compulsive Reader

“I’m sure I would have liked Lucian Freud much less!”
