“I came away from this brief selection of poems full of admiration for Tyler-Bennett’s work and her ability to pin down the psychological dynamics of people under pressure, the capturing of a bird’s flight and challenge of discovering the winds of change and making them part of her subject matter. Her apparently effortless writing, her dry-as-a-bone humour, make the subjects of this world tolerable.” Patricia Prime (nhi review)
