Her scattered reach and lack of self-centredness are unusual and attractive. She writes about fire, flood, drought, refugees. She has not one but many poetic voices, an agility - no imaginative leap is too great to attempt. --Kate Kellaway, Observer, Poetry Book of the Month [on What Long Miles]
Totally addictive. What Long Miles by Kona Macphee is a revelation. Its vivid, powerful and, dare I say, perfect poems linger and grow in the mind like those dry flowers you put in water so they blossom afresh. --Regi Claire, Scotsman, Writers' Books of the Year 2013
Kona Macphee is a truly gifted poet and I always read her work with admiration. She is a profoundly serious writer whose skill and lightness of touch takes us to the very heart of the matter. I thoroughly recommend What Long Miles as one of the finest collections I have read for some time. --Ron Butlin, Sunday Herald, Books of the Year 2013
