    'Cast off deliciously into the night. Delicious, provocative, uncompromising. Anna Brook's poetry speaks powerfully of sensualilty, vulnerability, and of delight in intimate meetings with nature.

    'On the threshold we purchase a nip of designer danger. With wit and irony, Jenny Weight flies you beyond the comfort zone into outer space then navigates the way back to urban space. A journey with attitude.

    'Your words rattle around me like gravel on a roof. You'll enjoy the sharp, satisfying impact of David Cookson's images as he provides a lively and humorous commentary on people and events. There's sensuality here too; tomatoes never tasted so good.' (Publication summary)
