"...wry, sometimes beautiful, sometimes sad observations on people, things, nature and arts itself. Here's a poet with some moxy, some style and some grace, who sings like a wounded winter bird and is worth listening to."
"These poems are studied presences, careful of concept, sound, syntax and grammar, able to transpose an extraordinary sensibility into a careful system of lines. Lovely surprises gleam in the tracks and pleats that take you into brisures of received reality." Máighréad Medhb
"Exposure" is a finely-wrought, dramatic collection of poems woven from the landscape and folklore of the Orkney Islands.
"...a very fine book, a dark hymn to the wonder and mystery of this most remote and fascinating of archipelagos."
