Reviews

"Superb, substantial and intricately varied... One of the wonderful things about Symmons Roberts is his way of pushing poems - and himself with them - in a direction you were not expecting. He constantly reconstitutes the world... Symmons Roberts reminds us of how easy it is to see human extremity without seeing it - a moving feat in what is a first-rate collection." -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
"There is pleasing variety here... Articulate and well-achieved... Symmons Roberts's voice reverberates the most." -- Declan Ryan * Literary Review *
"Enchanting." -- Tristram Fane Saunders * Daily Telegraph *
"It is a book for our times, hopeful yet grounded, and not above its subject." -- Rory Waterman * The Times Literary Supplement *
