Book description
'The Waste Land may have been smoothed to automatic for the iPad, but Simon Smith's Gravesend makes the South-East coast of Dickens and Conrad a place worth missing connections again. All the digital landfill of one London poet's life is here, not to mention a book-stopping tribute to Cy Twombly. Line by line, Smith is one of the most exciting poet writing in England: if it weren't for the sweet Thames and the Little Chefs, he might pass for an American.' - Jeremy Noel-Tod
