Her first book of poetry is an elegant collaged scrapbook * Observer *
A treasure . . . beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist * iNews *
Pop's high priestess bares her soul in this candid collection of poems and lyrics . . . offering a chance to appreciate on the bare stage of the blank page the fineness of her words.
