“Lesley Ingram’s wild, direct poems enfold furies and flowers. They throb with colours, ‘anger-red’, ‘as green as the kelp shawl’. Compellingly strange, Ingram’s lines re-create both the menace of the ‘Butterfly Whisperer’, and the ‘Fire-starter’s’ memories of ‘the cold of flight’. This is a vivid, vital first collection.” - Alison Brackenbury
“A haunting collection whose returns to sea, salt and bone explore the brackishness of human relations, the kinship we crave with the non-human, and our desire to trade flesh for something less encumbering.” - Damian Walford Davies
