'An inventive, incisive first book'

Ben Wilkinson reviews The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street in the TLS, and very generously too:

'With virtuosity and brio, the poems blend the English lyric tradition with the styles of European and, in particular, German writers from Goethe to Gottfried Benn, developing a decorative yet tightly metered free verse as capable of witty evocation of complicated landscapes as of subtle, plainspoken pathos.'
