Although I decided I’d like to read both my Saul Williams books back to back last month, to get me primed for his performance at the London Word Festival, it only just occurred to me that in doing so I’ve invalidated the title of this blog. Oh well. Perhaps I can slip in a bonus book one week I’m on holiday or something.
Paul Farley, The Ice Age (Picador, 2002)
John F. Deane, Manhandling the Deity (Carcanet, 2003)
R.S. Thomas, The Stones of the Field (1946, from the Collected Poems, Phoenix, 1993)
