Losing your mum is a big thing; I can only imagine what losing a wife of 53 years feels like. I am so impressed by how Dad, Bruce Nicol, has risen to this most challenging of life events.
As the blurb states; ‘Cryptograph is a soulful reflection on the meaning of human existence with direct imaginative empathy towards our own and others’ inner life, clearly revealing this as the core necessity of love. In this series, Nicol condenses an honest search for a home for the soul, away from political bigotry and formal religious identity, a home he roots firmly in our own hearts and imagination. A powerful and moving collection.’
