Posted on Thu, 28 Feb 2019

Made me think of a patchwork eiderdown made of gauzy mists, black velvet inside caves, shimmering satin clouds, thick embroidery of hedges, like reliving memories as you sew it together with words.

"The way I go is over quilts

Posted on Sat, 23 Feb 2019

I am not sure. The little girl's grandmother is reported saying she wished they had not named him? If the rest of the family feel that also, maybe their wishes should have been put first?

If the boy who did this wanted notoriety, if there...

 Heard the voice clearly in my head - you wrote the accent so well. You have made a voice that sounds real, joking even as the air runs out

"geniuses? Shiny smug beetles

Posted on Wed, 13 Feb 2019

"geniuses? Shiny smug beetles" YES they were!!! Invulnerable, unsquashable, surviving everything. While I was the worm burying myself in the compost quiet of the library hoping no one would notice and send me squirming outside into all the noise...

Posted on Tue, 12 Feb 2019

that's so clever! It reads like waves coming in, each one higher than the last, or a time lapse film. I love how the last line in each verse links to each next like cogs fitting perfectly, it emphasises how everything works perfectly one stage...

Posted on Sun, 10 Feb 2019

Posted on Wed, 06 Feb 2019

I hope Shirley finds happiness in your book. At the moment she feels like someone searching up and down a corridor looking  for a door that has been blocked off and papered over. I am very interested to see how you develop the characters who can...

Posted on Mon, 04 Feb 2019

"out of decay and wilting drabness, dearth" what a description of Winter!

"Surprising growth" is clever as they rise out of the ground
