Rumi: The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing
Rumi: The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing
by Coleman Barks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Love poetry, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another book of love poems? Yes, but with a twist of Rumi, who makes it all his own. Some very beautiful verses.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Reference: Love, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rumi's philosophy is based on love, something sadly lacking in the world. Reading this book reminds us of that, brutally.

Wrestling with the Angel: A Life of Janet Frame
by Michael King
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars In and out of sanity, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Frame's biographer wrote this touching book during her lifetime, most ofwhich was spent in "loony bins".
Frame was a brilliant, imaginative writer and her own story is very moving;

5.0 out of 5 stars River deep, mountain high, 6 Feb 2014

This review is from: Cham (Paperback)
The main character (who goes by the fabulous name of Itchy!) guides us through some turbulent snow-covered mountain terrain, crevasses and smooth stretches, as in life.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.69

This book (parts of it, anyway) should be compulsory reading for children.
A deep, thought-provoking work by a rare spirit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Telling the time (bis), 11 Nov 2013

See review of the blue version.
Nothing to add, except perhaps that the 'tick-tock' isn't too loud (a plus in my book!)

This 'no-fuss' clock does what it's supposed to do.
It looks fine on the wall and is easily readable from a fair distance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truthful and magical, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a brilliant final-form translation (by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard) of one of this century's greatest poets, who received the 1963 Nobel Prize for Literature.


James Agee: A Life/#08295
James Agee: A Life/#08295
by Laurence Bergreen
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The power of personality, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
James Agee's life was one of high genius, and high tragedy, shortened by his terrifying self-destructiveness.
Laurence Bergreen puts all this together in his brilliant, moving story of promise fulfilled and of talent lost in dissipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars La crème de la crème!, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always had fairly dry skin and a couple of months ago my hands became really dry and even itchy. E45 moisturising lotion was highly recommended by a friend who was surprised I'd never heard of it.
Applying it regularly and especially after my hands have been in water has smoothed and soothed them. The lotion has no smell, isn't greasy and my skin loves it...glad I ordered two!
