A Voice Above the Linn

by Robbie Lawrence, with poems by John Burnside

Alberbury, UK: Stanley Barker, 2020.

 

A Voice Above the Linn is remarkable. It’s not quite a garden book, though it is about a man and his garden. It’s not quite an art book, though it is filled with magical, evocative garden photographs and portraits. It is a soulful fusion of the two—and unforgettable.
