Scar warmly reviewed again!


I'm sure I've never had a chapbook as widely reviewed as Scar, and as I think/hope it's my best work to date, I'm dearly heartened by it. The latest review comes from fellow American expatriate Mike Ferguson on his mikenandenglish blog here. Here's a passage that especially pleased me: 'There is an emotive crescendo as the poems and their recalled/imagined stories continue, and it is genuinely sensitive, that seemingly simple arrangement of lines with their paces and pauses and projections avoiding the melodrama of a more blatant poetic diatribe but instead more disturbing in the building outlining of the whole.'
