BOOKS: By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept by Elisabeth Smart
Available from Amazon in paperback only
AWESOME - first published in 1945, it is three decades since I first read this extraordinary book and I was, once more, astonished. A masterpiece of poetic prose. To quote Brigid Brophy in her Foreword to the book 'Reading the book is like saying a tragic, pagan, erotic rosary'.
