I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

A striking performer of her own poems, Ros Barber has the gift of recreating her voice – and the voices of others – on the page. The poems in this debut collection demonstrate her wide range in form and subject and her skill in highlighting the extraordinary within the commonplace. With their leavening of dark humour and their formal dexterity, her poems charm, entertain and provoke.
'an honest, unflinching and hugely satisfying debut'
