4.0 out of 5 stars Delicate
Better than 'God's Gift to Women'; not as good as 'Landing Light'. Sometimes I have no idea what he's going on about, though whatever he says he says beautifully.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'You did not write me, fool. Nor will you ever.'

It does, however, include the first (and best) part of the Alexandrian Library, continued in later collections God's Gift to Women and Landing Light. It's an obvious first collection, but it's still Don Paterson's first collection. Buy it, you fool.
