Retirement is . . .
being able to read three books at the same time.
A first poetry collection by Scottish poet, Andrew Philip, The Ambulance Box. I met him at the Arvon course two years ago. He blogs here.
I'm two thirds of the way through The Rabbit Omnibus by John Updike who died recently. Three of the Rabbit novels in this collection, Rabbit, Run; Rabbit Redux and Rabbit Is Rich. The other novels in the series are Rabbit At Rest; and Rabbit Remembered.
And just in case I was enjoying myself too much Meter, rhythm and verse form by Philip Hobsbaum. A concise but comprehensive survey. So I'll be able to say exactly what an amphibrach is.
