I thought this book was pretty good – sometimes it was hippyish, and sometimes it was sublime or scientific. Ditson is playful when it comes to words, and he uses language to its full extent to evoke a strong image in the mind of the reader. For example: “People don’t really look at the dark factories – they’ve become the background like broken barns and rusting tractors rotting in empty fields.”
Austin Macauley, the publisher of this, has sent me a bunch of poetry books to take a look at. So far, this one is probably the best.
