A Real Man by David Savoury
A Real Man represents twenty years of writing. In scope, the collection ranges from the intimate to the universal; from the surface of a man's skin, to the boundless perspectives of the cosmos. Now deeply serious, now wickedly funny, David Savoury moves easily from profundity to profanity and through unblinking candour to tenderness. The enormous breadth and technical mastery of this collection leaves a lasting impression and begs the question, 'When have we seen something like this since the death of Auden?'
