Read full description of the books:
There is a wonderful freshness and clarity about her imagery and word choice.
Brilliant sense of humour e.g. in "The Queen of Sheba" & "Arraheids".
Loved the imaginative characterisations of the pilot & nurse in "A Flame in My Heart" series of poems.
Best of all the cycle in "The Autonomous region" where fact & fiction & myth became interlaced into a brilliant whole. These the most powerful poems in the collection.
Jamie is not just a poet of rural beauty and splendor, but also of the urban, down at heel & squalid. She pictures these beautifully and raises hope out of the unpromising.
