Latest Reviews of Rack Press Poets

The latest issue of the Welsh magazine Planet has reviews of each of the three 2007 Rack Press titles. The reviewer, Richard Poole, praises Dai Vaughan's Inconsequences for its "tautness of style" and concludes that his sequence consists of: "Strong, sharp-edged poems." He says that Peter Dale's collection of epigrams, Eight by Five, is "a dense book, with much to admire and think about, from poignant reflections on loved ones, to laconic takes on middle-age and religion, to aperçus on poetry...All in all, excellent value...." From Hazel Frew's collection Clockwork Scorpion the reviewer, calling the poet "an image-maker", picked out "Doing Time" as the most successful poem where "Two cooks work side by side, engrossed."
