This impressive debut has established Hera Lindsay Bird as a good girl with many beneficial thoughts and feelings. With themes as varied as snow and tears, the poems in this collection shine with the fantastic cream of who she is, juxtaposing many classical and modern breezes. Bird turns her prescient eye on love and loss, and what emerges is like a helicopter in fog or a bejewelled Christmas sleigh, gliding triumphantly through the contemporary aesthetic desert. This is at once an intelligent and compelling fantasy of tenderness, heartbreaking and charged with trees without once sacrificing the forest.

Review:
The deadpan comic bravado of the New Zealand poet Hera Lindsay Bird looks literary decorum in the eye and dares it to blush at her bad-taste metaphors and emotional bull's-eyes (Jeremy Noel-Tod Sunday Times)

Without doubt the most arresting and original new young poet, on the page and in performance (Carol Ann Duffy)

Hi, dear, we have to say how much we enjoyed, if right word, the Hate poem. Really made us think, loved the line about the ancient cannon (Text message from Ashleigh Young's mum)
From the Back Cover:

'Without doubt the most arresting and original new young poet, on the page and in performance'
