Review – The Frogmore Papers

There’s a lovely little review of Spearmint & Rescue in the current issue of The Frogmore Papers [No. 89].

Jeremy Page writes: ‘‘Mark Russell’s first collection dispenses wit and wisdom in roughly equal measure. The starting point of a Russell poem is often some mundane encounter or incident, but the beauty and craft of this writing lie in the unpredictability of what follows. In this accomplished debut, poems characterised by wry observation consistently ring true.’
