Reviews

‘… the kind of poetry that imbues the everyday, the tarnished and burnished, with the possibilities of the transcendent.’ (Guardian)

‘A first collection that draws intense attention to the edge of things, that point where land becomes sea, north south, interior exterior and when ordinary is recast as miraculous.’ (Poetry Book Society)

‘A sparkling collection of crystalline poems.’ (The Times )
