‘Confidently launches and swims into surprising landscapes…Jill Dawson uses bold and evocative images which convey much of the duality I believe she expresses with her title.’
– Jennie FontanaThe North

Assured, varied and interesting poems. Dawson has a particularly good ear for the vernacular; snatches of dialogue are woven seamlessly into poems in a way which not only creates a solid sense of the character speaking, but also a kind of intimacy with both them and her.’
– Odyssey

‘If you are an Americana freak, like me, this book is a joy.’
– Iron Review
