    Praise for Beverley Bie Brahic 'Brahic's aesthetic works effectively to nurture a sense of instability that dismantles expectation... leaving the answers to the questions at the foot of the reader... both daring and delicate.'
    Maryam Hessavi, The Manchester Review
    'Bie Brahic has an eye for the telling detail...yet she is never satisfied with the simple description.'
    David Starkey, Santa Barbara Independent
     'Fearlessly physical and observant (John Updike's fiction comes to mind), Brahic carries on writing where many poets would stop, and earns that space.' 
    Carol Rumens, Poetry Review
