Reviews

"Records changes and continuities, both in my life and in writing. Stylistically the poems move between the spontaneity of psychic automatism and a steadier, more consistent practise of revision. In writing these poems, what struck me was the way lines grew their own networks of surprise - often in fact presenting me with insights I would only later define as true." - AJ

"Strong, controlled, finished, some excellent turns..." - Gary Snyder
