This site gives information about the poet and novelist Richard
Price (who writes fiction as R.J. Price).
Small World "A work of genius" -- Louise Welsh.
WINNER OF THE SCOTTISH BOOK AWARD for POETRY
"That hoarding of the precious before it's gone, not only for the parent
but for the child who will inherit the memory, the story, is beautifully achieved, as is the unbridgeable distance between parent and child."
-- Tony Williams.
"It is the sense of the spaciousness of Price’s language
that I particularly came to admire in this book. In his
longer poems there is a roominess: nothing is easily locked down into simple structures; the
complexity of thought and sensation is given room to be fully expressed,
not simplified, yet remain accessible. I might call what Richard Price has achieved the new personal."
-- Caroline Clark.
"My poetry highlight was Richard Price’s Small World, full of linguistic invention and
adventure, but also very touching in
its exploration of the relationship between a father and his daughters." -- Andrew Crumey, Books of the Year, The Scotsman
