"This is a rare thing: a successfully funny poem, which is imaginative, tender, and unexpected. The final image seals the whole poem with a statement of love - usually hard to pull off - which works brilliantly." - Sinead Morrissey on 'Evel Knievel Jumps Over My Family.' "This poem is marvellous. The way the subject is handled is superb, and the ending is a corker!" - August Kleinzahler on 'Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren in Crumlin for the Filming of Arabesque, June 1965'.
