"The Well in the Rain" brings together work from Tony Curtis' six previous books. Bicycles, famine, ghosts, grannies, Tibetan Buddhists, Beckettian sighs and Lucian Freud's nudes are all revealed with a rare, and loving, simplicity. His award winning poetry has always been characterised by its compassion and humour: full of Gods but empty of forgiveness. In a closing selection of new poems, gathered here as 'Tossing the Feathers', Curtis' wit and heartache surface in a long poem that faces the loss of his father. This poem - "The Well in the Rain" - is a prayer, a cry, a whisper that sings in the dark. This is life-giving, life-affirming poetry, full of loss, love and longing.
