    Praise for Cliff Ashcroft 'A superb book...who else has written so movingly about an absent presence in these times?'
    Peter Redgrave (on Faithful)
    'The Anthology's most consistently impressive poet...simple, natural vocabulary and a careful, level tone (which) reminds us that small objects contain infinite possibilities.'
    John Redmond (on New Poetries 1994), The Times Literary Supplement
