Outside the Narrative: Poems 1965 - 2009

- Tom Leonard

( Paperback )

”[A] generous selection of Leonard’s poetry from 1965 to 2009. Many of the earlier poems are faithful to the speech of Leonard’s native Glasgow, capturing not only the sound of a particular accent, but the hesitancies and false starts that characterise an individual’s speech…[t]he demands and limitations that Leonard has placed on his poetry have resulted in a unique body of work: terse, funny, unyielding and necessary.”
