“These poems are from a highly distinctive new voice. They bristle with sensual wit, chronicling relationships young and old, personal portraits and the minutiae of life as we live it. The unique voice lies I the music of the language, a distinctly un-English sound, often in a minor key, elegiac but with unexpected leaps of the imagination. Against a Celtic bass-line, she sets her own modern turn of phrase and sense of humour.” Hugo Williams
