Adversity in the Arts, by Sam Riviere

7 September 2013

personally i can’t remember       hearing of a time there was so much
well-written work being produced       all of it extremely well-written
S’s first novel is excellent        H’s new collection is also excellent
i’m told how nice it is to see that I        T and E finally have their
books out i’m sure they’ll receive        excellent reviews in the broadsheets
it’s no exaggeration to say that        there are not enough minutes
in the day to give each the attention        they undoubtedly deserve

[Read in 81 Austerities, by Sam Riviere, published by Faber & Faber. Ripped from Eyewear.]
