Review: Approximately in the Key of C, by Tony Curtis

Peter Viggers, The Manchester Review, March 2016

His language is clear and alive, with irony and wit, he is effective in capturing the rhythms of ordinary speech and giving voice to the otherwise unheard as evident In 'Talking to the Wallpaper man about a Sculptor', "No, I'm completely lost. Maybe his art / is beyond me, says Kevin".


He is accomplished in a variety of forms, showing the care and precision found in Michael Eagan's pipe making: a lucid lyricism is present throughout, the narratives finely balanced between lightness and gravity, with economy and eloquence, sitting alongside self-deprecation.
