'Victoria Mosley's poems are compelling. She writes with power and brilliance. Her love lyrics are deeply personal and vividly seductive: they jump off the page with the energy of their performance. The forms are loose but elegant, and the imagery has a laser precision that is sometimes painfully sharp, and always surprising.'
-- Max Saunders, author of Ford Madox Ford: A Dual Life
