Obsessed with words and language since her early childhood, Laura Taylor believes in the power of poetry as a means by which silent voices speak and hidden ears listen, and that books really can be your best friends.
"One of the country's finest poets, both on the page and on the stage. A spirit at once empathetic and revolutionary. Real words for heartbreaking times, a call to action!" - Attila the Stockbroker, poet & musician
"A poetic battle cry. I'd like my teenage daughter to read these poems because, as women, we shouldn't have to wait for middle age to claim the right to be ourselves." - Alice Nutter, ex-Chumbawamba, screenwriter & playwright
"Defiant, furious, vulnerable, bloody-minded and wonderfully joyous, this volume of poems encourages us all to hang on in there. Fill your heart. Read this book." - Steve Pottinger, poet & performer
"This is poetry that does not just describe our world: it challenges you to change it. And it does so with such class." - Janine Booth, writer, poet, activist & Marxist motormouth
"Laura has perhaps the key quality to be a true poet: she has something to say. This book is of and for the times we are living through and, as such, ought to be on school curricula." - Julian Jordon, Director, Write Out Loud
Includes a Foreword by Professor Mike Thomas, Vice-Chancellor, University of Central Lancashire.
