Tokaido Road

A blog review– from Scotland – of Nancy Gaffield’s Tokaido Road. There was a party for the book last week at the University of Kent in Canterbury, a party for friends, family, colleagues, ex-colleagues, people who knew a lot about poetry and people who probably hadn’t read a poem since school, and it was a lovely mix. The book is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, and it’s worth saying again that for the Arts Council to pull the rug from under the PBS, which is able to send books like this down more roads than I could ever travel myself, is a crying shame.
