“Gardini’s poems ride on a wildness of heart that accumulates its expressive power image by image, each bursting with knowledge of what it is naming ... This is a collection that delivers very much more than the “promise” of things to come.” Karen Press, Chimurenga Chronic

“Beautiful. Complex and challenging without being obtuse. Straightforward without being crass. Kind and empathetic and shining with goodness, but still angry.” Rosa Lyster, BooksLive
