This is a collection to delight, a book to make you laugh and cry, and also to make you stop and think about the world we live in. Karen’s world is hilariously absurd, occasionally tragic and there is always more going on than initially appears. With three added poems, this new ‘addition edition’ is a welcome second chance to gather seeds from one of the most individual of contemporary poets in Wales today.

“Karen is a risk-taker. Her choice of words is deliberate and precise, and she loves to play tricks on her reader.” Kathy Miles

“…. a volume that is constantly questioning. The breakup poems, the love poems, the god poems almost reminiscent of RS Thomas. Brewer has wit that is so sharp and a use of pun that truly is like knife work.” Dominic Williams

“These poems range from the hilarious to the tragic. Brewer’s talent for capturing those brief, seemingly mundane, moments of living for the reader to experience is profound and impressive.” Carly Holmes

“Karen Gemma Brewer is a breath of fresh air, a lyrical acrobat brimming with quiet humour. Akin to Pam Ayres and John Cooper Clarke, she is a stunning and captivating performer.” Lazarus Carpenter

“There is poetry in here that can creep up on you, wake you up, surprise you – and sometimes punch you in the gut. You will love it, laugh with it, get cross with it, be saddened by it, but you won’t be able to ignore it.” Jackie Biggs
