Slowing Down the Afternoon

by David Healey

published 2010, price £5


Healey’s voice rises out of the Suffolk landscape with a natural sympathy but it’s also shaped by an acute eye for urban detail and a sardonic awareness of modern life in Britain. May I suggest this is a good introduction for men who are frightened of reading poetry?
