A Guernsey Double

I have just finished reading 'A Guernsey Double' by poets Peter Kenny and Richard Fleming. A truly emotive work, it brings back many deep-rooted memories of my childhood on the island. I particularly enjoyed Peter's 'Night Walk' and 'Erbaut 1942,' both dark poems with the power to provoke. Even the strongest sceptic would feel bound to question his own mortality. But you don't need to love Guernsey to enjoy this book - the message is there for us all.

I'm an exiled Guernseyman and really enjoyed the book too.
