“In Cutting the Green Ribbon, real-life contemporary experience is interspersed with the imagined voices of famous women, creating a multi-facetted and powerful collage of what it is to be woman. I’m reminded of the feminist slogan ‘The personal is political’, as vivid and startling imagery both strips bare and re-dresses notions of ‘femininity’. Even the language is alive, tantalising and tricky. Words and form interact playfully, and provocatively, in poems that are in turn tender and sharp, thought-provoking and paradoxical. This collection is hard, hungry, passionate.” Sarah James/S.A. Leavesley
