Sport 10: Autumn 1993
HOW TO TALK
How to Talk is also how to listen and how to look ... These poems find points of departure in family and memory, dreams and journeys, laughter and love. Ranging in tone from spare and lyrical to rich and conversational, they are an exhilarating debut from one of our most promising poets.
Damien Wilkins has been called the most talented short story writer of his generation. His first book of poetry broadens that reputation ... These are poems which engage the fullest range of sympathies, inhabiting that world of brothers and cousins, of puddings and TABS—the romance of thought as well as of things, of what is idle and what is otherwise.
