Inheritance reviewed in the TLS

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 9.32.45 AMInheritance has received a really fabulous review in this week’s Times Literary Supplement to end the old and start the new year with. Here are the first two sentences: “Kerry-Lee Powell’s poems are full of lively vignettes in which realism strikes lyrical sparks off harshness. “Russian Brides” thriving on air and vodka are at once predatory girls on the make and fairy-tale princesses “luring icons and stars/from clifftops”, and a bald old man by a murky pond is mesmerized in “The Encounter” by his own death’s head reflection “smirking at him in green-flecked slacks/from his cave beneath the lilies”.
