Dressing Up — Giles Turnbull
“These poems use energetic and open free verse forms to evoke the slippery and mercurial nature of contemporary urban experience, and have a conspicuous command of voice and tone, so that they are very lively but also capable of shifting, with high intelligence, into more meditative modes.”
A stand-out debut pamphlet from Giles L. Turnbull.
