“Prew contains and works her images beautifully throughout this book. She allows herself to pace it according to what she feels is necessary revelation. Her obliqueness is tenacious and requires the reader to engage.” – Christine Murray
“I think this may be Prew’s best yet, which means that you should buy the thing.” – David McLean
