Viv Longley's Tally Sheet
"They should have been blooming by now,
Life events, people and places. Viv Longley is keeping account and this is her tally sheet, a document drawn up with a deftness of touch and poetic skill. Viv's first collection proudly presented by Currock Press.
"Here are skilful and moving poems that underline the fact that all our lives are available for myth, available for narrative, available for metaphor. Viv uses detail, rhythm, observation and a kind of 'speech made visible' to underline and celebrate our common humanity."
