Indelible, Miraculous

Julia Darling

Indelible, Miraculous

This collected edition commemorates the 10th anniversary of Julia Darling's death, and includes a substantial selection of unpublished work. Jackie Kay writes: "The poems are funny, irreverent, moving and never sentimental. You can recognise yourself in them, recognise your family. They are warm, full of compassion; [...] a shining bright light."

Indelible, Miraculous, published on the tenth anniversary of Julia Darling's death, is a timely reminder of the achievement of this most life affirming of poets, a 'first aid kit for the mind' that deserves to find a place on everyone's bookshelf.

Colette Bryce

Julia Darling [was] observant, inventive, witty, wildly funny at times and wholly unsentimental. The sternest curmudgeon will be hooked by her blend of pragmatism, romance, anarchy and art: "Be late Be sordid. Eat six pies", she urges, since "Beneath your feet / worms aren't worrying."

Sean O'Brien, Sunday Times

She [had] the astonishing ability to dive into that other world of metaphor and vision and to surface with just the right image to express vividly the complex emotional sphere in which she works. Here are poems about chronic illness, friends, daughters, about the fragile beauty of what we have, about dying, but above all about living.

Jo Shapcott, on 'Apology for Absence'
