"Larry Buttrose’s poems disrobe and contemplate the great existential truths of life: love, desire, memory and death...Read and be enlightened." Peter Minter
"It’s a book by a poet who can praise life and yet sting when he looks at what we have brought upon ourselves. It is a surprising book, the work of a brilliant poet." Robert Adamson
"Buttrose is one of our most indispensable poetic voices." Geraldine Brooks
"Sweet, funny, savage, sumptuous, sad, these poems taste of Larkin and Eliot but mostly, ruthlessly, of Buttrose." Elizabeth Farrelly
