Review of Pamphlets

"A sequence of thirteen poems is presented here, but poems with a difference. They form a narrative which illustrates the history over eight generations of the poet's family...In doing so, it also shows us glimpses of a wider picture, both at home in Shetland and much further afield...The poems are straightforward, often conversational in style; they are meant to tell stories, and that is what they do. But they also paint pictures, and bring people vividly to life...This is a fascinating book."
