From the Word Go by Nick Drake
Book DescriptionNick Drake's "From the Word Go" explores the different meanings and implications which are tightly packed into that small word - from departures on journeys in this world and beyond it, through expulsions from homes, places and relationships, to the possibilities of adventure and new discovery. At the heart of the book is a sequence describing the dying, death and afterlife of his father, an account of the struggles, fears, comedies, losses, and revelations of that final process of going out of this world. "From the Word Go" builds upon the considerable achievement of Nick Drake's award-winning first collection, "The Man in the White Suit".
