Majid Sits in a Tree and Sings

by Rebecca Cullen (1st Sep 18 | 978-1-912196-11-1)


This is a pamphlet of poems which shine and crackle with their own dark electricity. Finely wrought, precise and wide ranging in their themes, they carry a pleasing shiver of wildness in their hearts. – Liz Berry


I Wish I Had More Mothers

by Ann Gray (1st Sep 18 | 978-1-912196-12-8)


We both loved this moving, tender collection of poems which explores what it means to have and to lose a mother. The poems in this pamphlet are lyrical, carefully crafted with a lightness of touch and, so importantly, "unafraid to be kind". At once a joyful and aching read. – Liz Berry


The Topiary of Passchendeael

by Christopher North (1st Sep 18 | 978-1-912196-13-5)


A large and various cast of strange, sad, joyous, repellent and poignant characters. A sort of travelogue or bestiary. I liked its oddity, gusto – and unemphatic pathos. – David Constantine


Sleeve Catching Fire at Dawn

by Madeleine Wurzburger (1st Sep 18 | 978-1-912196-14-2)


An extraordinarily precise and effective deployment of sometimes quite arcane knowledge. There’s the shock of originality, followed by the more important realisation that things that matter are being said. – David Constantine
