"A collection full of passion and subversion ... keen and urgent with an untamed beauty - like a puma caught under a streetlight. She chooses her language and targets with precision and infuses humour and fight in every verse." - Henry Normal, poet

"Rejecting the beige and embracing the dark, this collection is a lyrical and defiant hymn to vodka nights and concrete days. Shot through with nostalgia and the fear of losing fellow dancers to normality." - Kate Fox, Stand-up Poet

"Her poems are like Geneviève herself... strong yet sensitive, clever yet accessible, dark yet resplendent with colour. A collection penned with acute observation and affection. A poetic celebration of 'otherness'." - Joy France, Afflecks Creative in Residence

"This book is a brutally affectionate hug and a call to arms for all the losers, freaks, and feral lost souls of the world." - Steve Nash, Saboteur Awards Performer of the Year
