Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

First impressions are important, and this book will certainly leave a positive first impression – it’s beautifully bound and the layout is fantastic, with high quality paper and a gorgeous rainbow illustration that hints of darkness, that the author created herself.

It’s a good metaphor for the type of poetry here – outwardly happy and occasionally inwardly dark, with interesting wordplay and a wide range of topics. Liz was the winner of the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2015, as well as Scotland’s Makar. Pretty cool!
