Book Description

2 Sep 1991
Christopher Reid always startles and delights readers of discernment. He has, too, always broken new ground, as evidenced here by two long poems, both concerned with the coaxing of eloquence from difficult circumstances. The first recounts, in accomplished argot, the quirky memories of an old man in his hundredth year. The second celebrates the recovery from a dangerous illness of his wife - broken fragments that sing themselves into wholeness.

I love Christopher Reid but was not prepared for the profound mixture of emotions held within the pages of this gem. On one page I felt like I was 10 again and on another I was reminded of our mortality and humanity. The book quality was impressive and I just cannot fault any part of the buy. I return to this collection time after time and it has become a firm favourite that seems to throw something new up each time I turn the page.
