“Coventry doesn’t romanticize—her portraits do not eschew brutality—but neither does she condemn. In her first collection at least, Coventry is closer to Baudelaire than she is to the aforementioned quality armchairs; the title poem brings to brilliant life the world of people most polite society considers ‘wasters’.” - Kevin Higgins, The Canadian Journal of Irish Studies.
“I adored this distilled and spiky work… Coventry has a striking ability to mine the achingly bleak for cracking lines.” - Jaki McCarrick, Poetry Ireland Review
