'one of the outstanding books of poems of the decade.' —Kevin Ireland
'Wise, wry, acerbic, ironic, each piece begs to be savoured slowly.' —Harvey McQueen
'demonstrates anew O'Sullivan's insatiable curiosity about human nature and language . . . a very remarkable collection of poems.' —Ken Arvidson
'There is a kind of luminous spirituality about O'Sullivan's poetry, that long after you have read the poems, continues to reside in the objects or the situations the poems describe.' —Waikato Times
