5.0 out of 5 stars Prose that Grows (on you), 22 Mar 2006
Mr. Philip D. Wyatt (Cambridge, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Sound of Paint Drying (Hardcover)
I cannot believe I am the first to review this magnificent book on Amazon! On the Eve of John's new release 'Uncut Confetti', I thought it would be a good idea to look at this - his previous offering.
Those not familiar with John Hegley's work may find it strange at first, but just like his glasses, the more you look at them, the more things start to become clear. John seems to have left behind his Doggy for this journey and has delved more into Greek Mythology for inspiration, along with his travels to various climes resulting in some hilarious rhymes. There is also an interesting story about John and his reunion with Miss Phelp, who appeared a few books back.
The main part of this book though is Jonh's touching journey to France to recreate a Painting that his dad once did. A very touching piece of work.
John is the national treasure the press claim him to be and this wonderful book can only be enhaced by seeing John perform live which is a magical experience.
