• Vertigo & Ghost explodes into furious life with a series of poems and fragments about the Greek god Zeus… jagged, staccato poems that shoot down the pages like lightning boltsan addictive, thrilling, sickening experience.

    John Self, Guardian
  • Vertigo & Ghost knocked the breath from me. Such furious, fierce, ecstatic poems, at once brutal and heartachingly tender; I lay awake at night unable to stop thinking about them. Mothers and children, girls and women, their vulnerabilities and sorrows, fears amidst grave danger, their beautiful animal selves. Against a frightening darkness, these “sore jewels” radiate wild white-heat.

    Liz Berry
  • This extraordinarily moving collection is a bold confrontation of violence against women. Vertigo & Ghost is one of the darkest, bravest and most unsettling collections I have read in a while.

    Kate Kellaway, Observer
  • An exceptional achievement.

    Paul Bailey, Literary Review
  • [A] tour-de-force… [Vertigo & Ghost] has generated a lot of (justified) buzz… poems of lasting power.
