  1. Hi David
    It seems that n+1 might have lost your two daughters piece. The link on your page no longer works. It is unfortunate; I would like to read it!

  2. It’s quite odd that I come upon your comments on Laura Riding this late in the day. quote: “Laura Riding was undeniably brilliant. There’s an abstraction and intensity to her poetry that leaves even the most “intellectual” poets of the 20th century (Stevens, Zukofsky, Bishop, Eliot) in the dust.” I just had occasion to look for her Collected Poems, Persea, in the States because it’s no longer available in the UK. Your review struck me as powerful, more so, perhaps, because we had a Zoom meeting on Laura (Riding) Jackson yesterday at the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation ( ) and I was asking anyone if they had extra copies of the Persea edition poems they might send me.

    Extraordinary that you’re a software person. Your review is right on the button, which is very rare, and I wanted to get in touch somehow.
