Geoffrey Waters, The Larkin Trail



Geoffrey WatersThe Larkin Trail (Kingston Press)

A wonderful book, crammed with Geoffrey’s art work and accompanying narrative, this makes for an excellent companion publication to his friend Jean Hartley’s Philip Larkin’s Hull and East Yorkshire.

“From this publication stemmed the idea of a walk to commemorate Larkin’s birthday on the 9th August. This sketchbook, compiled by Geoffrey Waters for his personal pleasure and as a reminder of the occasion, charts the first of these walks on a flawlessly sunny day in 1996”.[Jean Hartley]
