I am so bloody glad to see you.
‘Annie Clarkson’s versets – shapes where poetry and prose meet, declare a truce and mingle – generate so much heat and tenderness in equal turns; they read like reports from a twilit, overlooked world, writ in vinegar on chip paper that will stay news.’ ~ Paul Farley
'Winter Hands is the book equivalent of half-caught glimpses from a fairground ride, fleeting for sure but enough to create an indelible impression' ~ Darran Anderson Bookmunch
'They vibrate like poems do, they leave resonances like poems do, they leave mysteries, they make you want to go back and reread them. Annie Clarkson is a brave poet; and these are brave poems.' ~ Steven Waling Brando's Hat
'Her writing makes you ache, long after you have closed the book.' ~Tania Hershman The Short Review
'Winter Hands is a remarkable first collection' ~Paul Sutherland, Dream Catcher
