The fall at home -- The blind eye -- The book of shadows -- Afterword: on aphorisms
The Fall at Home adds a third new volume of aphorism to Don Paterson's previous acclaimed collections. Here the reader will find hundreds of reflections on love, God, art, sex, death, work, and the spirit, imagination and conduct of the human animal. Writing with the same blend of high seriousness, black humour and lyric precision that define his poetry, Don Paterson has made a book to carry everywhere and open anywhere, to lighten or darken the moment - but always to administer a jolt to the idling mind.
