“a startling book … beautiful in every way: the words, the images, and the production” — Rebecca Rego Barry, Fine Books & Collections
“marvellously sombre, both in presentation and content. […] This fine, odd, even moving book…” — The Book Collector> (Winter 2014)
The title poem, read by the author, provides the concluding voiceover in a newly released documentary, The Booksellers (2019).
