A Beautiful Body Of Work

by jojosjacket (WorldCat user published 2012-05-31) Excellent Permalink

I was very surprised with this book after picking it up in an independent shop. 

The poems are full of wonderful imagery and are beautifully exquisite.

I would highly recommend this to anyone with even the slightest interest in modern poetry.

An excellent read!
