book of days

Smokestack Books 2009

‘Simplicity’s deceptive.  Here is a gathering of verses that carry, alone and together, a whole year’s work – and not only that but many an earlier year of writing-work as well – so lightly.  Here is the gathered grace and strength of the spider’s web that took all night to spin.’

‘Linda France opens herself to the act of finding one image each day; within that day, recording loss and delight, allowing herself the lulls that are often enough.  The form and its practice Linda has offered are a step into the poetics of the day.  Take up this book and in doing so you too can take up the form.’
