“The voice in Lynn Davies’ stunning new collection exudes a sense of someone speaking from the beyond, from a place where “time as I once knew it was gone;” yet Davies’ poetic voice is far from distanced or aloof; rather it is witty, wise, and often funny. The “field crackling with sound” that she portrays in “Winding Down” could well describe this entire collection - a gorgeous lyric tour de force.”
Jeanette Lynes
author of Archive of the Undressed


“Appealing also is the absence of cynicism in her poems; rather, they shine with an authentic beauty. . . . Deeply experienced and finely wrought, Davies' poems are a pleasure to savour.”

“What a rich and peculiar book this is. The careful detail welling up in its generous ear makes up a new world. Each shard of this world, squash flowers, lines in a parking lot, German bunkers, mythical long-earred guides, is so exactingly noted we have given to us a far brighter, more welcoming cosmos.”
Tim Lilburn


“ . . . it’s full of poems that toggle back and forth between the otherworldly and the matter-of-fact with understated grace and good humour.”
Barbara Carey

“Her work is subtle and complex, registering in nimble shifts of metaphor and syntax the difficulty that is careful perception. Reading her poetry is like looking into the stillness of a pond: the detail of pebble and moss at the bottom is rendered in absolute clarity through the liquid transparency of the poem.”
Ross Leckie


“ . . . sees the natural world with a keen eye and an unsentimental spirit.”
