'A strong and focused debut'Scottish Review of Books.

'Flout, if it is not a dance, should be one. These poems dance.  I swear I could feel the movement throughout.  Flout is unusual, deep, musical, beautiful, and above all, true.  There's no posturing - just a real voice saying sometimes unreal things.  It's rare to see a chapbook so much at one with itself and its world.’   Enda Coyle-Greene
