from Blake and the English Romantics.

by Donna Pucciani (from Wheaton, near Chicago).

Part I focuses on weather & light, Part II on the sea,
Part III on stars, and Part IV on creatures.

Her poems detail what it takes to survive the sometimes harrowing, sometimes hilarious, realities of urban estate living. Jack Mapanje has said "Jo Pearson's poems are like images of paint thrown or splashed on the page. She wants the reader to see the patterns. This new collection is mature, assured and full of lively and memorable imagery...This is very good poetry"

Drawn to stories of her own and other Jewish families
who had come to this country to escape persecution,
Lynette's themes are dispossession and the outsider

by Newcastle-Upon-Tyne artist Liz Atkin
“even with more than half
the poems in the original manuscript omitted as
too macabre, this is still in places a quite deeply disturbing look at human relationships to inanimate representations
of ourselves ” - editor
