Having heard the Radio 4 programme in which Helen Dunsmore spoke about her book and which concentrated on the particular poem , The Malarkey, I decide to jump in at the deep end and purchase this book. I am so glad I did. This is a great selection of poems, in which words so carefully chosen can be interpreted to leave you empathising and also wondering. Isn't that the beauty of poetry? One can feel that the authoress has experienced life and loss and sets out to understand and accept what is inevitable. Beautifully expressed.The Malarkey

What you expect from this poet: thoughtful and elusive. And a little bit more. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to read the best of contemporary poetry.

I am currently enjoying getting to know this volume of Helen Dunmore's poems. Her poem about night life reminded me that our day world depends on those who work through the night.

Helen Dunmore's poetry is very poignant; the title poem especially. The poetry talks to the reader and makes you think. Thank you Helen Dunmore.

I thought that this story was pure, undisputed pleasure. The characters were plausible and very likeable and coming, as I do from a Roman Catholic, Irish background I really enjoyed this tale.
