"Fanning's poems... for all their quietude and hesitancy, their off-hand and often offbeat comments, their guarded privacies and sequestered emotions, sing with an elegant intensity"
Conor Kelly, Poetry Review

"The fluent and accomplished Gerard Fanning paces broad fields, an enigmatic surveyor with an appetite for the exotic cullivar"
Katherine Washburn, The Irish Times

"By and large, these are melancholy poems, run through with threads of memory, anxiety, illness and loss. But despite their sobriety, they contains moments of real glory."
Sarah Crown, The Guardian
