Winner of the Anne Elder Award
Shortlisted for the Mary Gilmore Prize
"Sensitive, almost fearless ... Libby Hart has crafted a distinctive first collection, she is a confident poet and her poems are a pleasure to read."
"What sets this collection apart from all those well-intentioned, carefully-crafted, ultimately timid and hollow collections being ferried out of the writing schools is that the poet here seems genuinely caught between one breath and the next, transfixed like a moth in a darkened room ... It is a rare and special gift."
"A small but significant collection of poetry that is engaging, thought-provoking, sometimes wryly humourous, and that demands reading and rereading to uncover the delicate nuances hidden so artfully within its language."
