Bevel

by William Letford

William Letford is an extraordinary writer. This book of poetry bursts with compassion, understanding, humour, bewilderment, joy. It is a masterclass in what it is to be human, and to have relationships with other people. It is a book to be savoured. Once you have read it, you will want to read it again and again.

In the mountains of northern Italy.


The chapel on the hill has no roof. For five hundred years its four walls have framed the universe. The locals laugh at the Sistine Chapel and call it the coffin lid.
