WALL STREET JOURNAL (JUNE 13, 1967)
A début in Britain of impressive qualities in "Born to Flying Glass" by Keith Barnes His title is from his prologue, reflecting a childhood in the midst of war :
Born to flying Glass
He has adopted, or arrived at independently; James Dickey's way of punctuating and stressing a line by spacing out words. He keeps his promise about obscurities - mainly - and in spite of anger and occasional outcry, there are affirmations and many pleasing tones. There is an original vision here and he will surely be heard from further.
