30th January 2021
There is a wonderfully perceptive review by Carol Millner of Murmurations in the latest issue of Westerly.

'The work as a whole is a sliding mass but at the same time it compels us to be still, to pay attention to absence and silence, to moments of splintering, to the hints and tiny clues that lead to rupture.'

To receive the attention of a review is always a pleasure, but especially so when the reviewer has read with care and insight.
