Reviews

  • "He writes like a man in love with language, with the sheer possibilities of words. His work is musical, brimming with slant rhyme and assonance, and also subtle in its effects...dazzling"

    Poetry Review
  • "Best known for poetry and fiction that digs deep into the mythic layers of the English landscape, he weaves together past and present, grief and wonder, with delicacy and grace"

    Independent
  • "[An] excellent collection"

    Guardian
  • "Thorpe’s language is musical, open-hearted and extremely polished…this book as a whole is almost novelistic in its thematic quality, bringing forth ideas about time, presence and absence"
