some early reviews of DAYS OF THE COMET:
'Perkins is a deeply sympathetic character despite his flaws...terribly moving but also funny.' A.M.Hobson in Blue Tattoo.
'The charm of Perry's writing rests in its acute observation of human nature and frailty, the richness that he brings to the mundanity of the ordinary and his ear for the nuance of ordinary speech. The prose is effortless, the wit organic to the characters and setting and the peripheral cast as eccentric a bunch as you will find anywhere this side of Dickens. If you've ever wondered what old poets do when they don't die then Perkins will show you.' Mike Somers in 'Writer's Muse'.
'...crafted, amusing and very entertaining...Perkins comes to life on the page...' Peter Thabit Jones in 'Seventh Quarry.'
'Get a copy. It's a gem!' Mike Jenkins in 'Red Poets.'
'...one of the great excluded.' Peter Finch.
