‘Ann Pilling’s poems have the precision gained in a lifetime of professional writing, the particular glow of long-treasured memories, and the passion of long-stored speech.’ – Kate Clanchy

‘Through childhood, loss and living, these poems carry the reader with them, through pain, through the warmth and wisdom of their final lines. They bring bravado, biscuit tins and balloons. They bring hope.’ – Alison Brackenbury
