Accomplished, thoughtful, perceptive, touching... Brilliant! An engaging and intriguing first collection with a wide range of subjects skilfully handled, yet with a solid baseline grounded in acute observation of relationships and events.
This is a brilliant collection! Helen did so well to be nominated for both the Costa prize and the T.S.Elliot prize: she's bound to win in the future! The poems are both witty and gritty and should appeal to both older poetry fans and younger people starting to engage with the genre.
Wow this rising star is amazing. I started out expecting this book to be good due to its reviews, but it reached a part of my soul I didn't realize it could. I can't wait for Mort's next work and will be the first in line to buy it.
