Having been (for quite a few years) and still being a fan of Luigi Pagano’s writing, both prose and poetry, I set out to buy his Smashword Edition of poems ‘Reflections’ … and ended up buying not only ‘Reflections’, but also ‘Idle Thoughts’ and ‘Naughty but Nice.
Why all three anthologies?
Pagano is a darn good poet with a delicious sense of rhythm and rhyme, and these three collections take you from silly grins, to big laughs, from silent thoughts, to tears, from naughty giggles, to nice smiles. Gems, one and all.
‘Reflections’, ‘Idle Thoughts’, and ‘Naughty but Nice’ now share my usually sleepless nights and let me tell you: they are good company, very good company. I even allow them to share my bedside table with Dickinson and Prévert and that is just about the biggest compliment I could give them.
