Media reviews

"This is a poet's book, his mind wide open to the cultures of the world, especially of the north, specifically Aberdeenshire. The language is luscious, musical and precise, rich with quotation and the cultures of, especially, northern Europe, from minerology and industry to poetry, painting, music."
– Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales

"A masterpiece [...] beyond being merely clever or wise: a beautiful book."
