“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— VĂ­ctor Rodríguez Núñez

Review: Vandemonian, by Cliff Forshaw

As always, Cliff Forshaw's writing embodies a large intelligence. These are poems of voyage, exertion and discovery, enjoying the challenge of unpredictable and unusual locations, both geographical and psychological. At the same time, they demonstrate grounded, dependable craft. They never trick the reader, but, witty and exuberant, send us on our poetic journeys with new imaginative maps.
