Finishing Touches


Out of stock


In Finishing Touches Peter White brings to life a northern 50s childhood complete with dolly blue and donkey-stoned steps. Here too are tender love poems and rare but lovely poems about being a grandfather as well as an honest appraisal of how it feels to grow older. A poet at the height of his powers looking back with clarity, wit and wisdom. Technically skilled (there are sonnets, villanelles, a pantoum, a canzone as well as free verse) and frequently moving, this is a collection to savour.
