Easter Surprise

Times Online - Sunday Times

Nicolette Jones's Easter roundup in The Sunday Times contains few surprises or titles I haven't considered myself, apart from this one, which I have had in my daybag for several weeks, awaiting a spare hour on a train. Lack of recent trips to London means that the book is still unread. It won't stay that way for long...:

Steven Herrick's The Simple Gift (Egmont ?4.99) is a remarkable work for young adults written as a series of free-verse poems. It is about a 15-year-old boy who leaves home for a hobo life, finds companionship, the consummation of first love and a home in a deserted train carriage. This is a small gem with wide appeal. [NICOLETTE JONES]
