It was Cailleach, who tagged me, if you’re looking for someone to blame for this entry:
1.One book that changed your life?
Letters and Papers from Prison by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which made me look at faith in an entirely different light. Teach Yourself Writing Poetry by Matthew Sweeney and John Hartley Williams, which got me writing poetry and made me think about it in a different way to how I'd thought before.
2.One book you've read more than once?
The End of the Affair by Graham Greene. There have been more, and several poetry books.
3.One book you'd want on a desert island?
A really big anthology of poetry.
4.One book that made you laugh?
The Colour of Black and White by Liz Lochhead
5.One book that made you cry?
I can’t remember ever crying at a book, although many books have made me feel sad.
6.One book that you wish you had written?
Collected Poems by Edwin Morgan, although I’m more than happy that Edwin Morgan wrote it.
7.One book you wish had never been written?
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown – I hate bad writing that becomes really popular, so that book really is just representative of a very wide phenomenon.
8.One book you are currently reading?
The Full Indian Rope Trick by Colette Bryce, The Asylum Dance by John Burnside, and Selected Poems by Czeslaw Milosz. That’s three, I suppose, but that’s how I read.
9.One book you have been meaning to read?
Collected Poems by Lee Harwood
