A review –
This is a book which surprises and delights in equal measure.
Little slices of life so precisely described that the reader is left with a wry smile or a grimace or a wince of pain or a burst of laughter. These poems touch the reader in a way that only poetry can.
It is a surprise to learn that such assured poetry is a first collection from someone writing in a language which is not their native tongue. I am full of admiration and look forward to reading more in the future.
This is a book to keep on your coffee table or on your bedside cabinet to dip into when the world has become a little bit difficult to cope with. You will find humour here and succour too. It will be enough to take your mind away from the concerns of your every day.
