Love and Garbage by Ivan Klima and Rain by Don Paterson
This was especially evident when compared with the immediate, involved way I responded to the previous book I read, Don Paterson's masterful collection Rain - incidentally the first collection of poetry I've ever read from cover to cover. That's the sort of literature I wish to read - engaging, playful, and jam-packed with memorable lines to mull over.
I'm glad there is still literature out there with which I can have that intense and memorable relationship. I was beginning to lose hope.
Full reviews of Love and Garbage and Rain will follow. Sometime. Probably.
