Reviews

As I read this book, I was making little notes to myself, and came across a piece of paper on which I'd written... 'it consoles, sustains and restores.' Which indeed it does. It is indeed a masterwork - from the opening majestic image to the closing one. It's a great flow of words, slowing, gathering pace, surging - as nature does. It provokes thoughts and anxieties, yet there is such joy and tenderness, a balm, 'a doorway of hope', with 'nature more determined than tarmac.' It is personal and profound, written by a man whose eyes and senses miss very little; would that I could experience all that Matthew Shaw does in his epic 'Atmosphere of Mona.' - Shirley Collins, folk singer and author
