“…wicked, weird and insightful.”

The new Orbis arrived yesterday and I was very pleased to see that it included a review of my debut collection by Noel Williams.  It’s a perceptive review, identifying my wish for more to be intended than said in my work, the unexpected insights that result from shifts in viewpoint and the surrealism.  The review ends:-

“The simplicity of some of these poems belies their subtlety.  It’s a collection written with an intelligence that’s wicked, weird and insightful.”

With that I’m off down to London in a few days to read at Fourth Friday (which is at a temporary venue in South London while the Poetry Café is being refurbished).  I’m reading with Wendy Klein who was a fellow student at the Writing School.
