This is a beautiful autobiographical book that is full of grit and honesty. Rarely do books make me cry but this one has. Adrian reveals his inner self and in the process touches on the pain and pleasures of life that is a common experience for us all. It is down-to-earth blunt northern-ness mixed with magic and soul. Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars The unwritten now written 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
It has been said that poetry helps us to discover for ourselves a part of the world, however small, that we already know. And then, somehow, it sets us on another course. The poems contained in The Call of the Unwritten by Adrian G.R. Scott do just this. Full, as previously inferred, of autobiographical moments. And also infused with universal themes. Themes of everyday life intweaved with the greatness in each of us. Themes of loss and longing, of being found and of discovering one's rightful place in the world - whilst the radio plays on in the kitchen, companion to another life. Themes that include the hot leap of love and the blunt fact of death. The meaning of the stars in 'Last Rites' being a personal favourite. Read, inwardly digest, and walk on taller as a result.

By Mrs.B
'The Call of the Unwritten' is a series of moments in time seen through the eyes of the poet - moments we can all recognise, some ordinary, some very special but all uniquely entered into.
Adrian has a talent for picking up words like an artist takes up paint colours from his palette and spreads them across the page in a glorious rainbow of rhythm - try reading them aloud, as I have done for quite a few audiences now and you will see what I mean as the phrases tumble off your tongue ! Some of the poems are so very soulful and dig so deep that they almost take your breath away. I have watched a group of people visibly and spontaneously breathing deeply in and out with their eyes closed as I have read 'There is one thing necessary' to them. 'Taking Stock' and 'Keelhauled' have expressed for us as a family some of the pain we have been through recently, so beautifully. There is a wash of gentle Yorkshire humour mixed with stronger and sometimes darker shades of curiosity about life and its meaning through to warm glows and bright splashes of day to day observations of home and family.

And - I often end up thinking - I wish I had written that !
