Living on the Difference was the overall winner of the 2003 Book & Pamphlet Competition, and shortlisted for the Aldeburgh Best First Collection Prize.

 

‘Living On The Difference shows someone not afraid to experiment within the confines of accepted normality. Low-key domestic scenarios can blossom into indiosyncracy. These are not mere tricks; they are a reminder of the strangeness underlying the world most of us take for granted. Slice-of-life togetherness is re-examined; the matter-of-fact becomes surprising; the ordinary sits cheek by jowl with the extraordinary.’ — Paul Groves

‘This collection has cumulative power, cohesion, and a particular, individual voice. The poems bring in a wide field of reference, which deepens and adds layers of understanding and meaning.’ — Gillian Clarke
