In this, her fifth collection, Char March searches for hidden nests of humanity within the cold, bare branches of politics, and gives a voice to the voiceless (both human and otherwise). She expertly immerses us in the landscapes and soundscapes of her twin homes of Scotland and Yorkshire – and, whether visiting the depths of Leeds’ sewers or tasting the Hebrides sea, never strays far from the sharp humour and eye for detail that her readers have come to expect. This is poetry at its very best, highly-involved writing that seems effortless; a feast of fantastic literature to warm your soul, whatever the season.
‘I love Char March’s poems. This is a fantastic collection, powerfully evocative and full of lyrical emotion.’ Francesca Martinez
‘These poems made me pay attention – and laugh. They’re wry, pithy and downright funny. They unpack into serial astonishment: each poem doorsteps you with its distinct voice and attitude.’Graham Mort
