Another review from Norwich Radical, this time for Time and Tide

Carmina Masoliver has been busy reviewing our books on Norwich Radical, and she has some excellent things to say.

such as…

At times it’s amazing how so much can be said in such little space…

wonderful descriptions…

an incredibly well-structured rhyme that lulls us like the lapping waves of the sea…

with thumbs up for Roppotucha Greenberg, Diana Powell, Cindy George, Barbara Renel, Holly Magee, Paul Foy, Claire Booker, Kate Foley, Sarah Tait, Susan Cartwright-Smith and Julie Laing.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF A DRESS BY EMMA LEE – REVIEW

REVIEW of Story Cities on The Short Story

We’ve been reviewed by Becky Tipper over on The Short Story website

Hilights:

What emerges from this collection of stories is a sense of the infinite variety of the city – fleeting, contradictory, transcendent, prosaic, intimate, familiar, surprising – full of people we’ll never really know, whose lives briefly touch our own.

And after reading this book, I moved differently through my own city – stopping to look and listen in new ways, and noticing things I might have overlooked. Story Citiescertainly lives up to its promise as a ‘guide for the imagination.’

Story Cities reviewed on Sabotage

And they liked it…

…a true reflection of the metropolitan experience…

 

Next time you sit down in your favourite cafe, or when you pop in some earbuds as you settle into a plastic chair on the metro during your commute, make sure you have a copy of this anthology.

Poetry Book Society review In Retail

An unexpected email today from the Poetry Book Society, sending me a PDF of the Summer bulletin, ‘with review of In Retail‘.

Really? I thought, we got a review?

It doesn’t say who wrote it, but thank you, whoever you are.

 Treading the line between wry absurdism and abject despair, In Retail is like reading anthropological field-notes from what should be an alien world but is, unfortunately, our own.

You can buy a copy on In Retail by Jeremy Dixon direct from our webshop, (post free in UK) or from your favourite independant bookshop.

Vindication review in The Lake

Brilliant review  of Vindication over on The Lake, from Hannah Stone:

Perhaps what resonates most from this collection is that whatever the subject matter, Wollstonecraft’s exhortation has been heeded throughout: ‘Women – endeavour to acquire/strength, both of mind and body,/ soft phrases, susceptibility/ of heart, delicacy of sentiment…’.

New review of Vindication on London Grip

Over on London Grip Carla Scarano has reviewed Vindication at length  https://londongrip.co.uk/2019/02/vindication/

a compelling collection… captivating prosody… sharp irony … fresh, thought-provoking… clear riveting lines…  The poems collected in the anthology form an absorbing analysis condensing some major issues in the vindication of women’s rights since Mary Wollstonecraft. They are a tribute commemorating women’s past sufferings and perseverance, and they point to present commitment to an ongoing fight.

In Retail customer feedback

The launch of Jeremy Dixon‘s poetry collection, In Retail seems to have met management guidelines for a successful promotion, we hope to bring you photos and video shortly, but as these were outsourced from Arachne’s web, to local operatives, I can’t tell you exactly when.

Don’t forget, for the whole of February you can get special offers on our other LGBT books when you buy In retail, check out the second page of our Special offers

In the meantime, we’ve been getting some feedback over on our shop page, with universal 5 star reviews. (Of course, these are all from people who pre-ordered, so we can assume they were quite keen in the first place) but you can now not only buy a copy from us direct, but leave your thoughts afterwards, like these lovely folk.

Jeremy’s poems are like stars in a bleak landscape, beautiful, funny and life affirming

New review of Erratics over at The Lake

Cracking review by David Mark Williams of Cathy Bryant‘s Erratics  over on The Lake

Bryant is given to firing from the hip, the poems barely containing at times the incandescent exuberance of what she is driven to express.
