A winner in The Poetry Business Pamphlet Competition 2007.

Yvonne Green was born in London in 1957. Her poems have been published in many magazines and journals and on BBC Radio 4’s 'The Food Programme'. She is poet in residence to JWA Women’s Refuge, to Norwood Ravenswood and at Spiro’s Ark.

‘Yvonne Green takes us into the unfamiliar world of Boukhara and Judeo Tajik culture with complete assurance. For all the lucidity of her poetry, her work has an unusual density. This is a fine new voice, which deserves to be widely heard.’ – Elaine Feinstein

‘There is a homeliness and accuracy of observation and diction in her work which reveal religious and social dignity.’ – Sebastian Barker

‘These enthralling and lovely poems begin with rich recollections of another country (“so we ate so we loved”), but darken into the shock of domestic violence. This collection is absolutely straightforward to read, but quite unforgettable.’ – Alison Brackenbury
