Promotional Information

Anne Berkeley's poems manage to seem unnervingly direct while coming at you from the most unexpected angles. Whether evoking a childhood lived in the shadow of the Bomb or the skewed reality of a waxworks museum these poems take a clear-eyed look at the world in all its strangeness. -- Matthew Francis Whether via sound-effects ("the swallowing blue of a million delphiniums"), exact images ("the wall was speckled green, like ice-cream in the gutter") or that assurance with facts that convinces a reader ("gold a micron thick laminates the glass"), Anne Berkeley's writing has immediacy. She says it, you see it. -- Sheenagh Pugh
