Review/blurb: “The thing I most enjoy about Critchley’s poetry is the way in which she manages to suggest an ongoing sense of ’self-dialogue’ within her writing. Whether she’s talking about love (and as the title suggests, there is a lot of material about relationships) or politics or art or academic work, there’s always an inner-dialogue going on, a self-assertiveness questioned in the light of a relationship to the ‘public sphere’.” Steve Spence, Stride Magazine
