    'Phoebe Power's poetry is difficult... the best of it lingers long after readings and the plurality of voices she crams into so slender a volume commands respect'
    Leaf Arbuthnot, TLS
    'Phoebe Power, in this accomplished, formally restless debut collection, yokes together some very surprising things: political musings, quasi-comic consumerist dilemmas, fascinated and bemused observations of Austrian custom, transcribed vocal fragments, family history, even -€“ at one point -€“ a murder mystery. You feel there is nothing her acute poetic eye cannot absorb. All this incorrigible plurality is united by an intelligence at once satirical and scrupulous, probing and tender. Hers is surely one of the freshest new voices to emerge in years.'€™
    Caitríona O'€™Reilly
