Press for Limehaven: Poems for my grandparents
“It’s the best debut collection I’ve read in ages. This delightful, nostalgic book is a love letter to Vicky’s grandparents. The poems are clever and beautiful…”
Elaine Cusack, Culture, The Journal
“The book rolls out with a joyous panache… There is a gorgeous childlike voice to these poems, peppered with songs, rhymes and humour.”
Robin Houghton, Envoi
Affectionate, poignant and compelling… with lots of possibilities for English teachers… an excellent springboard for students writing about their own childhood memories and reflections.”
Susan Elkin, The School Librarian
“The language is simple, there is an immediacy here, a freshness… It illustrates Arthurs’ gift for tenderness, which is so powerfully demonstrated in this collection.”
Paul Blake, Brittle Star
“With its lyrical form, the poetry is inspired by childhood memory… beautifully presented…”
Mslexia: Indie Presses
“The poetry is powerful, emotive and personal…”
