“Each poem in this outstanding collection exists in its own right…The blurring of reality and imagination transform everyday occurrences into a fascinating and sometimes threatening landscape where the mystical and the urbane meet. These poems are alive: they have a heart beat.”

Kitty Donnelly, author of In Dangerous Hours

“This is a debut that feels too polished to be a poet’s first outing: the deftest ringmastering of a circus of words, the keenest direction of a broad cast of characters, themes and ideas.”

Mark Antony Owen, author of Subruria I and Subruria II

“Each poem haunts the page with precise imagery and a linguistic dexterity that illuminates the mammoth talent held in this book…a tremendous addition to contemporary art and a courageous, sensitive embodiment of masculinity.”

Briony Collinsauthor of The Birds, The Rabbits, The Trees

​”a collection that fizzes with the poet’s powers of observation…this is a collection to savour, from a skilled poet who encourages us to go out into the world with our eyes wide open.” 

Jen Feroze, author of The Colour of Hope
