`This is a book about human bodies: freckles, fists, itches and that "private reek". Graphic, funny and tender, these poems jostle with bodies that swim, jog, f*ck, medicate, spin on dodgems, grow up and grow ill. Girl is a quivering, kicking reminder of what it is to be alive.' - Clare Pollard; `These are poems of brave surrender to the accident of living, the constant somersault, and regardless of whether the change is huge or tiny - a thunderbolt or an unexpected freckle - it is always fundamental, always shattering, always a thrill.' - Caroline Bird; `Rebecca Goss's voice is quietly passionate. Her forms are exquisitely crafted. Her themes, of human fragility and of our bodies' capacity for pleasure and pain, are universal.' - Vicki Feaver
