At once epic and intimate, this volume of poetry manages to evoke a world of gentle lyricism, as well as more shocking visions.
There are tender, romantic poems, and darker, more haunting works, as well as introspective meditations.
It has the feel of a secret diary, and the scope of a prophetic hymn.
Having taken twenty years to complete, it is a testament of the author's feelings on life, and uses the striking metaphor and the powerful image to summon up a world of heightened sensation.
At once dark, and light, romantic and sceptical, humorous and grave, innocent and world-weary.
It is a dream.
It is waking next to the one you love.
It is a journey into the widest and loneliest deserts of a post-disaster landscape, and into the smallest corners of our hearts.
But most of all, it is a book that once you have read, you will never, ever be able to forget.
