RICE & RAIN - review 

"Personal poems, a picking over her elsewhere past, where her Phillipine relatives' stories got binned '...like their old passports... /...as they put olives in their mouths they will pretend / to accidentally bite off their mother tongue.' ...A small collection deserving of exploration."

From a paragraph review by Sam Smith, in The Journal.

THE NAGASAKI ELDER - review 

"Antony Owen has divided the collection into two named sections, 'Inferno' and 'The Human Blitz'. Owen deals with the devestation wreaked on Hiroshima in the first part, while focusing on closer to home in the form of the Coventry blitz during World War II, alongside placed such as Basra and Chernobyl.

"...The second section of the book, though shorter is no less powerful...

"This is a brave and bold publication by V. Press... Antony Owen is to be commended for tackling such harrowing subject matter..."

From a considered and detailed review (including a close-up look at two of the poems) by Andrew Taylor in The Journal.

"...his sustained use of form is also quite admirable. With controlled nerve, Clarke offers a sequence of quick, dark bites, with glinting teeth."
