HOT POT OF PASSION -
a sensual celebration of food
Edited by Julie Stebbings
"Vegetarianism - boring! Anyone who thinks so would have their world severely rocked by this little number...enclosed within the covers are poems, recipes and a little touch of folklore...served up with humour and a dash of sexiness...Wonderful!"
ANCHORING THE LIGHT
"One woman's story over chaos and pain has something to say to us all about courage, patience and transformation...it flowers into its own shining and singing self -- generous, authentic, inspring."
GREEN DUSK FOR DREAMS
"Ruth Snowden's poetry is crips and alert, often with an underlying pleasurable spookiness. Northern in emphasis, this is refreshing and exhilirating poetry for today's audience."
"I have always felt that The Song of Solomon was the sharpest and most passionate poetry of physical love; Fragile Bodies retells that song for our own day, with the same daring of rhetoric, the same assertiveness of the disquieting knowledge that love brings, and the loss of self that love demands, and how these both need to be embraced, even at our peril, if we are to be at all true to our modest and brief human lives."
INTERNET LOVE SLUT
"A rollercoaster of sex, gender, relationships and hyperspace, with a quick wit that can evaporate as smoothly as it is applied. A strong edgy voice, the poems are sharp, a weapon wielded gracefully when you are just sitting comfortably. Always enjoyable, contemporary and ever so slightly menacing...this is poetry with an unapologetic parental advisory label on it --
a poet with a man trap in her purse."
THIS RECKLESS BEAUTY
"Rhiannon Hooson's poetry glistens in the dark like the pointed end of a spear. It is sensual and dangerous, revelling in the primal forces simultaneously held and released by each poem."
"These poems have a direct relfective honesty. They capture in motion a questioning and questing mind as it 'labours to be beautiful'. As such, they remind us of what, ideally, the poet's life should be."
"Sharp, witty, charismatic, surreal and suprising: the poems are imaginative, playful, hallucinogenic and always take themselves with a pinch of salt as they explore the myth of the poet, the nature of art, and the fine line between creativity and madness. These poems explode with energy..."
BYRON MAKES HIS BED
"These are poems of sex and death, haunted by the shades of Lord Byron and Sylvia Plath. Desire and sensual pleasure is both redeemer and destroyer, tender and violent...Mad, bad and dangerous to know, like Byron before her, Victoria Bennett maps their unreliable, seductive boundaries."
THE 3AM CLUB
Anthology of Insomniacs
"...Poems that share the common thread of nocturnal inspiration. Showcasing five merging young poets alongside the Wild Women, the voices are as diverse as the poets themselves, yet, like the Wild Collective, all connected..."
