'Julian Turner's poems are concerned with a refreshingly wide range of subjects, from the interpenetrating identities of these islands to the fugitive colours of actual love, all distinguished by a compassion as intense as their musicality. He can also be very funny; his celebration of the epic bathos of golf has already been identified as a classic anthology piece of the future." - Ian Duhig'These seriously entertaining poems have a scope and ambition you'll be hard pushed to find in other debuts' - Paul Farley
