"Niki Strange's tender poems perform cartwheels against an urgent backdrop. In a world where rape goes unpunished grief 'bluebottles at the throat' and cancer takes apart a life, the imagination in these pieces still manages to create lively microcosms where 'All is shadow-less velocity'. Transformative and poignant, they 'snip a fresh angle' in stirringly intimate language." - John McCullough

"Niki Strange achieves an ethereal atmosphere that pervades the entire pamphlet, a literal sense of floating, of being above, distanced, a fly on the wall, a bluebottle stuck in the throat of leaning, learning, breaking out or being broken down to, finally, an understanding of the freedom in flying away. Here, the air is carefully folded into every page and released with the reading of each individual poem as if a held breath had been awaiting its release. A kaleidoscope careening into chaos, cancer and connection. A gem of a debut that shines more and more with each reading." - Damien B. Donnelly
