    Praise for Miles Burrows  'What I like are the poems which break out of being poems and approach the reader directly. That's something I always like on the stage, when the cast addresses the audience' Alan Bennett 'Your writing amused me greatly.'
    Anthony Powell

    'I'm proud to declare myself your fan. More a Mercedes than a minipoet.'
    Julian Mitchell
