George, another review of your book in your "pipeline": It may be lack Batchelor & Times broadsheet depth but it will be piped-up with a few Williamsisms. I'll be mentioning in passing your poem Goya's Chamber of Horrors for example. How is Uncle Gabriel by the way, is he planning to celebrate Poe's 200th birthday on Monday? Perhaps the usual pint of claret?
I love this:"With their almost-refrains and near-repeated lines, Szirtes’s haunting sequences allow him to explore the shifts and faults in the cultural connections that he makes." And this:"History has taught Szirtes to be wary of fixity and absolutes, and he is most at home in moments of transformation, as when meticulous observation gives way to marvellous vision."Yay!

My review of your book is on my blogbut dare you look?
Many thanks, Gwilym. That is a great compliment.
It's my pleasure. I have made one small edit but it's the same message!
