"War is a word that I pronounced very easily not too long ago: now it's filled with the weight of true meaning." And there, on page 90 of this book, was the very reason that I knew I would not be able to write a review. All I can say is that if you are prepared to put aside opinion and politics and bring to the forefront the author's poetry, this book is stunning.
- "The former municipal cemetery, brought back to life by the war." (Lions)
- "I walk by feeling helpless, aware of the next second in which maybe I'll be and maybe I won't." (Traffic)
Saddening, shocking and stunning.
"Like a love letter to the world on the eve of its destruction" Stephen Murray
"These dynamic and surprising poems challenge and delight at every turn. No survival kit is complete without a little grace like this." Brendan Constantine
