"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" -- Rev'd Oliver Dennis * Times Literary Supplement *
