Price: £5

Lesley Saunders was a winner of The Poetry Business International Book and Pamphlet Competition 2016/17, judged by Ian Duhig and Mimi Khalvati


‘Lesley Saunders’ Angels on Horseback at first catches you off-guard, seduces you with gorgeous vocabulary, then culminates in a chilling intensity. Lesley ranges through her pantheon of heroines, exploring the violence done to them not through worn rhetoric but through defamiliarising tropes of disturbing beauty and pleasure. It is rare to find poems as perfectly controlled, a pamphlet as assured and startling, as this.’ - Mimi Khalvati


Lesley Saunders is the author of several books of poetry, and a new collection Nominy Dominy is due out from Two Rivers Press next year. She is currently working on a book of translations of selected poems by the acclaimed Portuguese writer Maria Teresa Horta. She has performed her work at literary festivals and on the radio, and has worked on collaborative projects with artists, sculptors, musicians, photographers and dancers.
