 ‘Julie Maclean, one of the major new talents shortlisted for the prestigious international Crashaw Prize in 2012   ‘… writers we believe have produced superb first collections of poetry.’ Chris Hamilton-Emery (Salt, UK)

 ‘These poems have an appreciable crispness, surprise, intensity and clarity. Maclean has broken through to that rare space – call it a maturity of perception, a keen sense of image – that most poets never get to. This is strong and enlivening work.
David Brooks (Southerly, Australia)


 ‘This is poetry that you won’t want to stop reading. Its attractions are manifold: the milieu of the swinging sixties; love affairs that are by turns erotic, comic, tender and violent; unsentimental and powerful elegies; and an urgent attention to the surprising and plangent condition   of our lives.’
Maria Takolander (writer, literary critic)

 ‘Voted a winner in the Orbis 159 Readers’ Award, attracted comments about the ‘wonderful use of language’; ‘brilliant… writing. Succinct (with) memorable images…beautifully structured…irresistible. A remarkable collection which conjures up England in the 60’s in such vivid detail with its stories and descriptions that yes, you really will remember being there – or long to go back.’
Carole Baldock (Editor, Orbis and Kudos)
