  • Superb, substantial and intricately varied... One of the wonderful things about Symmons Roberts is his way of pushing poems – and himself with them – in a direction you were not expecting. He constantly reconstitutes the world... Symmons Roberts reminds us of how easy it is to see human extremity without seeing it – a moving feat in what is a first-rate collection.

    Kate Kellaway, Observer
  • There is pleasing variety here… Articulate and well-achieved… Symmons Roberts’s voice reverberates the most.

    Declan Ryan, Literary Review
  • Enchanting.

    Tristram Fane Saunders, Daily Telegraph
  • It is a book for our times, hopeful yet grounded, and not above its subject.

    Rory Waterman, The Times Literary Supplement
