'...a rich stuffing of literary allusion and magical imagery . . . A collection too big, in every way, to read at a sitting: take it on a poem-a-day tour. - Tina Shaw 

'a wonderful collection of tough, sinewy, restlessly intelligent poems. They trace with marvellous acuity the complex intersections of culture, history and place in family and personal identity.' - Hugh Roberts, NZ Listener
