Product description


It is a difficult thing to write about poverty in a mining village in the sixties without conjuring up images of all the other texts with the same signifiers. What Woollacott does is inject a familiar theme with fresh language and fresh imagery, creating an ash-filled place, peppered with magical-realism, animals and kindred birds. --Helen Ivory.

Fairy-tale realism, harsh and bitter-sweet . . . these poems gleam and glitter with the magic counter-language of childhood: rats, mice, gold stars, soot, dolls, birds, packets of tea, the works outing, the cabbage patch, the cry of the rag-and-bone man, the sea . . . --Anna Reckin.
