MARK STATMAN

That Train Again

"Here is music to slow the pulse, and re-tune the ear to what's important." - Cornelius Eady

"From dead flowers to suddenly blue starlings, from possibly green herons to lions that will not sleep tonight, Mark Statman's new volume bursts with the abundance of the natural world, laced by the estranging light of the imagination. The bursts of lyric ecstasy are so unforced, proceed from such a brimming-over of natural admiration, that to read this book is to skip across a field, alighting always on pebbles of joy. That is Statman's most celebratory, most accessible book." - Nicholas Birns
