Firewater & the miraculous Mandarin
Moat's 6th collection. Relating to episodes in an 'inner journey' or search, these are not the self-seeking of an individual man but of something more general: bewildered masculinity. The title poems are the proof and achievement of this search and the Miraculous Mandarin emerges as an all-demanding myth of the male which finds peculiar resonance in the context of our contemporary reassertion of the female. Of his previous work, critic Michael Baldwin wrote: "Serious, satiric, gnomic and...witty".
