Reviews

"This book proves that it is never too late for the eye to discover and for the pen to startle. " - Northern Poetry Review

"Heather Spears' poems are a curious blend of the distanced speaker and a sharp look at the reality of life. Her poems swing between minutiae?poems full of images we are told are unimportant?to powerful poems about war zones, and the suffering of those distanced from us. " - Canadian Literature

"Political despair and great hope oscillate in this compilation that is alternately sombre and very funny. Even through the darker weave of words, one finds a light touch, the un-heavy breeze of this author's hand. " - The Copenhagen Post
