"…if one looks at the best seller list of the ‘New York Times,’ one finds it dominated by what we call page-turners, books that have scant regard for felicities of style or intricacy of narrative but seek, in effect, to ape the pace, dazzle and formulaic quality of television, film, and now the so-called social networks and video games — in a word, books which, to the delight of large interests, sell in a hurry and in large numbers.

Sydney Lea’s poetry collections, I Was Thinking of Beauty and Young of the Year, are available from Four Way Books
