This is a beautifully prepared and presented collection of American poetry. If you want to discover and read the work of Emily Dickinson or William Carlos Williams this is the volume to turn to.


Runaway
Runaway

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A Strange Beauty is Born, 21 Sept. 2016

This review is from: Runaway (Paperback)
Stuck in an airport lounge for five hours this collection of short stories saved my sanity. I had been to see the movie by Aldomavar which is loosely based on some of these stories but the writing gives an ever darker edge to these strange tales of women young and old running away and finding new lives and new loves and loosing old loves and old ties along the way. Mesmerising. Once read, these stories are never forgotten.


The Darkest Secret
The Darkest Secret
by Alex Marwood
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Twists of Fate, 21 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Darkest Secret (Paperback)
This is a very clever book - carefully plotted with plausible characters and a plot which slowly unwinds, even providing a surprising little but nasty twist on the last page. Elegantly written with alternating time shift between the present and the recent past it had me hooked from page one. To call it just a great crime novel does not do it justice. This is novel writing at its very best.

Breathing Lessons
Breathing Lessons
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Maggie Made Me Laugh, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breathing Lessons (Kindle Edition)
This is the first novel by Anne Tyler I have read and it will not be my last. The prose and story telling appears effortless, but these skills are not as easy they appear but are achieved by hard work and great skill. In addition the story of Maggie and Ira's drive to Deer Lick to attend the funeral of a childhood friend is very funny. I defy anyone to read the opening chapter without laughing.

For the novice poet, and even for seasoned practitioners, this is an invaluable introduction to the techniques of English poetry. Beautifully written in simple english with well chosen examples, you could ask for no better guide to a complex subject.

It works, which is the main thing, and it seems well made and not too big or heavy.

This review is from: Alfred Hitchcock (Hardcover)
Prosaic. Seems to be just one damned film after another. Not much insight into Hitchcock and his obsessions

Colourful,even Dickensian, but it takes persistence to get into and understand the vast number of characters.
