"Donati's collection seems like some kind of Zen Calvinism, where you can stumble upon a revelation like 'Space Invader' in which Biblical text meets Atari graphics circa 1983, or the prose-poem 'The Interference Structure of Memory', in which wholly new methods of expression are introduced. Quotation would be obsolete: these are poems you have to read in their entirety. Donati is a poet bigger publishers should snap up." Scotland on Sunday.
"Rock is Water is an antidote to the usual mundane concerns of Western life. This terrific booklet, which Donati has designed and illustrated himself, is the latest work off the marvellous Kettillonia conveyor belt of poetic talent... I can't help thinking that Donati is a poet who is nurturing something outstanding within him. Rock is Water is an early indication of much more to come." [The Eildon Tree]
