‘This work challenges our abstract and cosy notions of motherhood with a brutal and vulnerable delve into the psyche. Calcutt grapples, sometimes violently, sometimes with aching tenderness, each hard-won line “like squeezing/flesh and fruit from the bone,/this terrible love”. This is an intimate book, the kind that comes in close to your ear to whisper dark secrets and unavoidable truths. These poems are spare, careful, insistent – and devastatingly good.” Robert Peake author of The Knowledge

‘Much like Emily Dickison, surprising and new. Working too, where all is movement, where the apparent solidity of the world is disturbed by the sure spotlight of metaphysical probing. Calcutt’s radical diction and subtle vigour, combine to teach us exactly “what happens when light changes.’
