Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Mary Barnard on May 2, 2013
Format: Paperback
After taking an AMP workshop, I settled in with his book of 36 gem-like poems. His writing is equally as entertaining as his teaching. He signed my copy with this: Happy, sad poems. His poems are cogent and surprising, they originate from a fresh and individual point of view. Whe he writes about a shoe in "Larkinesque", I get the idea that he has laid his head on the ground to write from shoe level. His acute observation is stunning. The result is a mix of poems to suit a mix of moods.
