The Way Back by Wyn Cooper


The Way Back by Wyn Cooper

A new collection by this Grammy-winning poet.


These quiet, clean, sharp-edged poems are populated with dangerous characters, dangerous mostly to themselves, 'who just want to have a little fun', or be loved. Wyn Cooper's poems are tight and pithy and fun. -- James Tate. Pretty often books tell us what to think; this one says, think for yourself, it will improve your mind. In poem after poem we see an admirable restraint in pursuit of passionate investigations, we hear a steady voice whispering in our ears. -- Dara Wier.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
