Sunday Papers: Simon Armitage

"[...] I press forward, each new step overtaking the last, and the earth rolls away underneath.  It's a treadmill, this journey, [...] or a motion picture with emphasis on the motion, a film that keeps spooling on from scene to scene.  Or it's a book I'm reading or the book I'm writing, every day a new chapter, every word a footfall, the path like a sentence, a line of language always heading off into the distance."   

On the turntable:  Ballake Siseko and Vincent Segal,  "Chamber Music"
