Myth, history, and the everyday are all at play in this wonderfully diverse collection.Invisible Assets: "After he threw he through aplate glass window, nature seemed that much closer.Even the dastardly division in societymight be healed by a first-rate glazier.Of course, on Sundays families still picnickedboldly on the village green, and afterwardsmarveled at the blacksmith's glowing forge--how strong they all were in those days!And yet how small! Even a man only six foot tallwas then esteemed a veritable giant.Surely the current furor over architecturewould have evoked from them only pitying smiles.Meanwhile the market for landscapes has neverbeen firmer. This view, for instance, includesseven counties, and a bull charging around in its paddock."Mark Ford was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1962.
