**Critical appreciation:**

‘His writing brings with it a passionate sense of the value of human beings and of human experience; it is meant to be heard as well as read on the page; it is disturbing as well as valedictory, redemptive as well as interrogative’ Graham Mort, poet and author, Professor of Creative Writing, University of Lancaster.
