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.
