Steal Away Boy

David Mitchell. Poet, legend, hero, human being.

Couldn't wait to get my hands on this new selected poems Steal Away Boy edited by Nigel Roberts and Martin Edmond. I was expecting a nostalgia trip - back to my long-haired muslin-dressed bare-footed early 1970s awestruck haunting of the edges of the poetry scene. But this book delivers a fresh wallop of really good poetry, not just a blast from the past.
