Grateful for this very sympathetic review of Ice Mountain at Escape into Life. A poet doesn’t need too many readers like Kathleen Kirk in order to feel very well rewarded indeed. (Also, yes: I think the height of summer is the perfect time to read a book about winter and early spring!)

So much for wishful thinking.

I think ecologically minded people should be reading less Mark Jacobson and more Murray Bookchin.)
