"A very fine poet, Andrea Holland’s work is intelligent, graceful and poignant. The voice comes with a lightly American inflection, but the quality of experience in it is universally humane, the form precise and necessary, the perception original, the language sharp, on a knife-edge."
"These poems cover a disparate and eclectic range of subjects… What holds them together is a questing intelligence, a self that feeds on art and literature and autobiographical experience to create poems that are not only vividly observed but also interesting and moving."
Andrea Holland was born in England in 1965 and moved to the USA in 1981, where she lived for fifteen years. Her poetry has appeared in many publications in the USA and the UK. She currently teaches at the University of East Anglia and the Norwich University College of the Arts.
