Perceptive and affecting, intimate and accessible, Livid Among the Ghostings is a passionate declaration, and features many of Anna's prize and slam winning poems.
"An assured and potent exploration in blue of the littoral zones between city and country, love and leaving; the places where light and shadow lay bruised in each other's arms" - Adam Horovitz, poet
"Adventurous and truthful in equal measure and by turns tender, angry, grief-stricken and joyful, sometimes within the turn of a line. These poems will move you and make you think." - Steven Waling, poet & reviewer
"A savage lyricality that lifts the beauty of brokenness and the brokenness of beauty to a transcendence of glorious primary colours" - Dan Holloway, Eight Cuts Gallery
"Full of warmth and insight and connection. This poet sings a deep sexy note, you feel it in your chest, where the heart lives." - John G. Hall, poet
