Though he is best known as a teacher and critic in Wales, here Mercer Simpson goes back to his roots in East Anglia.  The 'wordscapes' of the title are twenty of his favourite venues which he celebrates in lyrical and perciptive poems to the accompaniment of accomplished line drawings by Miriam King.

No one would notice it at the roadside

but for the surprise of flowers left by the sympathetic ones

who also put their shirt on love or life

believing the odds were evens.

from Gypsy Boy's Grave, Newmarket.
