Gloriously goodReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 February 2021
This collection is beautiful, honest, joyful, genuine and full of delicately realised technical skill. Maggie Smith has a pitch-perfect ear for the music and rhythm of words. This is one of the best collections I have read in recent years. Wonderful.

Evocative and scintillating words.Reviewed in India on 3 April 2021
She's the best of our generation and she deserves to be read a lot more. I wish her other books were available here too. The poem Parachute hits the spot!
