judge of the 2008 Kathleen Grattan Award for Poetry
A fine and fierce first book.
Her ear is attuned, her eye is sharp, and her taste is assured.
Add to this a mordant wit and a gift for imagery that is at once startling and right, and you have a writer whose work in turn moves, surprises and delights.
Poised and sensual poetry, with unsettling energies always threatening to break the subtle surface.
