"Rapturous even in despair"


Many thanks to Robert Peake for his sensitive and enthusiastic review of The Ambulance Box. As Robert says, he and I share the grief of having lost a newborn son, so his assessment of the book is of particular significance to me. Here’s a taste:

Sentimentality and easy words seem as though they might never have been invented in the remarkable worldview Andrew hands us in this book.

Robert’s blog is well worth a look. He too writes movingly about his loss and intelligently about poetry. As you’ll have seen below, I’ll be stopping by his site for my virtual book tour on 8 July. I think that promises to be a very special leg of the journey.
