Blogging for more ten years, searching the planet for the best in fiction, essays and poetry. I follow literary awards where the prize has shown a history of literary value. Follow me on Twitter @Messy_tony or on Facebook Messenger’s Booker

Review Policy – I review primarily translated fiction, contemporary fiction (only when it has been nominated for a major prize), Australian poetry and the occasional “lost” Classic (this is a rarity). Only books that fit that niche are considered for review.
