Great Regulars: It's where the sophisticated city of competing

identities is banished by a village-like subculture, in which difference dissolves into noisy conviviality.

[Peter] Sirr's language is generally simple and direct. It's not hard to imagine the addressee nodding his head at times in cheery agreement. But of course "Legacies" is the imaginary, interior half of an imaginary conversation.

from Carol Rumens: The Guardian: Poem of the week: Legacies by Peter Sirr
