"Jennifer Copley writes with a spare, uncompromising directness, her subjects parents, children, and all the intimate strangenesses of family relationships. She writes about the curiously alive power of clothes, and about the mysterious interpenetration of animals and humans, landscape and nature. Death and life, loss and fear leave their mark, but the borders between them merge.

Though there is an immensely insightful poem about a cat, this is not poetry for the faint-hearted. It is urgent, visceral work, written out of a fierce commitment to truth. Copley's collection deals with strange territory in a memorable and disturbing way."

U.A. Fanthorpe C.B.E.
