Book Description HTML

MIRRORS is an extraordinary book. Not only do we get a chance toread some haunting poems aimed directly at the heart, but we alsoget the author’s incredible account of what happened after thepoems of aborigine Eldred Van-Ooy were sent to him by anAustralian business acquaintance. Of that experience he says: every soul, every spirit, that arrives in this world ripples the very real water and disturbs the very real earth in a way we can only bend to.
