Here’s my review for Magma 29, covering the Poetry Book Society’s quarterly selection of poetry books. The PBS Choice was Michael Longley’s Snow Water. The PBS Recommendations were Matthew Hollis’ Ground Water, Kate Clanchy’s Newborn, August Kleinzahler’s The Strange Hours Travellers Keep, James Sheard‘s Hotel Mastbosch and George Szirtes’ translation of the Hungarian poet Agnes Nemes-Nagy – The Night of Akhenaton, Selected Poems.
