Reviews

A highly intelligent, yet very accessible collection and an interesting addition to the ongoing discussion of where our culture is with gender identity... There is something which feels very necessary about this collection and there are moments throughout where it feels like a worthy successor to The Feminine Gospels and The World's Wife. * Huffington Post *
Wonderfully playful... In the crowded field of mountain literature, this precise, sparky and constantly surprising book more than holds its own. -- Roger Cox * Scotsman *
A perfect response to the chauvinism face by the earliest female mountaineers... This precise, sparky and constantly surprising book more than holds its own. -- Roger Cox * Yorkshire Post *
Superb young Sheffield poet. -- Horatia Harrod * Financial Times *
Mort's assurance keeps us on edge, but trustful. One could say she doesn't put a foot wrong. Her style is spare, showing bone without too much flesh... This is a strong, fierce collection. -- Peter Scupham * Literary Review *
