• "I credit Ella Risbridger with curing me of a deep and lasting suspicion of poetry in general, and contemporary poetry in particular. Readers of a similar disposition should be warned that this collection – broad in scope, generous in spirit and wittily accompanied by Risbridger's commentary – will likely offer a similar cure, while those already in love with the form have new and startling pleasures in store."
