Kenneth Steven has written a paradoxical and beautiful book: gentle and fierce, local and global, metaphysical and tactile. Robert Macfarlane
Questioning, delicate, wise and full of love. Jay Griffiths
I find myself dipping very naturally into the poems, which have great freshness and honesty, often amounting to a striking purity and a real grasp of the physical essence of things. Theyre full of arresting phrases and images, and theyre full of heart. Graham Swift

Making the Known World NewPam Sanders, via The Good Book Stall
The first book I have read for a long time which has made me want to meet the author.>BR> Herewith a very short review, as my words cannot match the strength, truth and depth of his.
Beautiful, evocative and challenging, rather like taking a cold shower on a hot day: shocks, cleanses, and leaves you feeling refreshed and newly awake to the beauty of things.
