November 2016 reviews

cookeWe were so delighted to see the review of David Cooke’s poetry collection, A Murmuration in the TLS (August 19-26, 2016). Reviewer, John Greening wrote:

“The book is held together by love of place and a sober fascination with quirkiness, a study of a koala, a portrait of a Belizean woman in a pub, the English language itself…”
“There is much precision workmanship and a welcome lack of showiness in this collection from Two Rivers Press, whose publications are increasingly impressive.”   Woohoo!

David’s collection was also reviewed in Poetry Salzburg.
