About the publication
Launched at the Wordsworth Trust Summer Readings in 2007, this is Jane Weir's second collection, brimming with superb poetry including the opening poem, 'I'm Trying to Make Gnocchi Di Patate for Angelina for Old Times Sake', which also appears in the Faber Anthology, Answering Back.
Jane Weir is quite simply the most exciting new poet I have read since Alice Oswald.Carol Ann Duffy
