Ali Whitelock, in her earthy and unique, clear-seeing style, will have you tightly clutching this offering from the first line. Be prepared for a visceral storm; you'll be lifted to the heavens with joy and laughter or smashed to your knees in a bolt of shared grief, and often simultaneously. It's poetry, but not as most will know it; toss any prior expectations. And more than anything it's incredibly entertaining.
The humanity in these poems takes your breath away, makes you want to cartwheel and shout 'yes yes yes, that's JUST how it is!' Ali Whitelock captures the flawed beauty of life with an exuberance and courage that is gorgeous indeed, an invitation to live more fully. This collection is always close to hand, I open it whenever the edges of life are feeling dulled, when I need a dose of derring do. Her poems are sheer brilliance.
