Beyond the Tune review: Hinterland journal

…these poems aren’t standard fare by a long shot. This is not the average first pamphlet. There is a layer of deep dark behind the layers of lavender and white.

Reviews are like buses, it seems!  Hot on the heels of yesterday’s London Grip review of Beyond the Tune comes Rebecca Bird’s review, on Hinterland journal.

You can read it here.  And while you’re over there, why not check out some excellent poems by Richie McCaffery, Roy Marshall, Martin Malone, Helen Mort and many more (not all with surnames beginning with M!).  And there’s a really interesting interview with Daniel Sluman about his second Nine Arches collection (forthcoming), the terrible.

Happy reading!

I’m delighted that Michael Bartholomew-Biggs has reviewed my pamphlet, Beyond the Tune, and Caroline Cook’s Primer: both 2014 publications from Soundswrite Press:

You can read it on London Grip New Poetry, here.

Incidentally, London Grip also published Vintage, the second poem in BTT,  this summer.  You’ll find it here.
