Plato’s Peach by John Freeman, my review

To be honest, I am a very nervous reviewer and ask myself who cares what I think? But every time I do review a book I find it very illuminating and always learn something new. Looking closely at words on the page is not unlike taking a magnifying glass to a moss or lichen. Once you start, you can’t stop!

My review of this incisive and intelligent book appeared in Wales Arts Review and is here

The collection is published by Worple Press with a peach of a cover:
