    Praise for Pippa Little  'Richly imagined, wide-ranging and subtly musical, Overwintering is a most welcome collection.'
    Sean O'Brien
    'There's a quiet courage here. Meaning dwells in the clear images of sense-perception but transcends them too. The real is fleet, elusive: but when it earths itself in this world, it is decidedly womanly. There's an unexpected laughter, rueful, sly. This poetry will hold.'
    Gillian Allnutt
