I have been and always will be, a fan of Liam Rector's poetry. His three books, spanned over 30 years, mean more than anything else in this world to me. The inspiring part was that when I happened to purchase a second-hand copy of Liam's first poetry book, "The Sorrow of Architecture", it was an original copy sent to a reviewer. I have it with receipts and a note addressed to a reviewer and penciled-in remarks on most pages by the reviewer. I love the fact that an Australian can be holder of such a magnificent piece of American Literature. I feel that when alive, and perhaps even after death, his work will be forgotten; which I find a travesty. I have never felt more inspired, not just in letters, but life itself, by holding onto this book.
