Diving Deeper

In today's Star Two, my review of Alina Rastam's first collection of poetry Diver & Other Poems. My first review of any poetry book in fact so a little bit of a scary venture and I hope I hit the right note. I did very much enjoy the collection and there are several poems that I've gone back to reread several times ... will probably extemporise a bit more on the Puisi-Poesy blog which I have been shamefully neglecting for the last few weeks. (Sorry, Dreamer Idiot!)

Alina is one of the readers tomorrow at Seksan's and we have an altogether great lineup, although sadly Martin Axe isn't going to be able to make it.

And it has a very nice cover too. I hope to purchase a copy of it very soon :)
