 About the Book 

The Yellow Table casts an alert eye on the lost and the lonely - the crazy boy pianist, the bright boy who became a drug dealer - in poems jewelled with images that surprise. A statue is someone waking from an anaesthetic- grief is a goldfish quivering. She conjures the times with period detail - that yellow Formica table, a red windcheater, the smell of shoe polish- the dispersals of divorce and breakage, then repair - life opening like a white peony in her own cupped hands, vipers bugloss, like splinters of sea, far inland. It is a humane collection about human vulnerability.Gillian Clarke
