Mandy Coe is an original. No one looks at and writes about the world like she does… an almost Blakean sense of the divine in living thingsAnthony Wilson, Lifesaving Poems (Bloodaxe)
Coe flashes vivid images in front of our eyes, crams them into our hands, and makes us see and feel particular things in ways we’ve never seen or felt them before… even her most fantastical poems are not ways of escaping reality but of re-entering it with fresh eyes. Any good poet presents things from unusual angles but Coe does so with extraordinary glee.Acumen
