"Here's a new anthology with a job to do, which introduces a whole range of committed writing at the intersection of the personal and political. Here is the text of war, nature after ecological threat, ID in the information age, autobiography and displaced language turned into poetics, sexuality, anger and love. It's a beautiful sampler, a way in, and a report from the front: very soon now it will be indispensable." —Tony Lopez
"A dearth of experimental women writers in the UK? Here is proof to the
contrary: 25 articulate voices explore 'other' poetries. This is where
the energy is. Get with it."
