PRAISE FOR THE CALDER VALLEY CODEX:
'Steve Nash's poems speak with a 'feral tongue', honouring the Calder valley, a landscape of breathing chimneys, swooning moors and night-sky stories. This collection celebrates the desire paths we forge through language as well as through landscape. The poems of The Calder Valley Codex make you 'press your ear to the page' and listen truly'
- Helen Mort
'Millstone grit and the shadow of the industrial earnestness sing the song of the upper Calder valley. Steve Nash writes about these 'edgelands' with skill and artistry, captures the idiolect of their 'haunted geography' in sharp, relevant imagery and thoughtful, precise language. These are very fine poems indeed. I have enjoyed them immensely. You will too.'
- Bob Horne
