‘I love Carole Bromley’s poems because they make me optimistic about growing older. The getting of wisdom, for Bromley, has not meant self-satisfaction or the blunting of perception: her poems are wry, funny, cleanly-written, and, especially when their perspectives are long, startlingly fresh and new.’ Kate Clanchy
