"Here are poems about the moments and details of a life. Poems about oxblood boots, about love and its intensities, about feeling ripped in half after a birth, and revelling in a son’s discovery of dust motes. Poems about divorce and about loving women, at being surprised by a love for a man who will become an ex-husband. The outside world peers in with poems about flaming aeroplanes going into towers. These are poems where ordinary moments become extraordinary through their telling in soft, flowing lines." Arja Salafranca, author of Beyond Touch and The Thin Line
