    Praise for Harry Gilonis 'Gilonis's Rough Breathing: Selected Poems covers three decades of his work - meticulous, beautifully poised among many traditions: essential poetry-reading, essential-poetry reading.'
    Carol Rumens, The Guardian - 'a small alba' was Poem of the Week, 14th May 2018

    'There is indeed a sense of the renewal of language through Rough Breathing as I turn from page to page, or maybe it might be more appropriate to say from leaf to leaf: Harry Gilonis's poetry consists of words made new.'
    Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence
