Poetry Shelf noticeboard: Paula Green reviews Elizabeth Smither’s Loving Sylvie at Landfall on line

Read review here

‘The writing is euphonious, restrained and utterly revealing. Each character is scripted in chiaroscuro, the light and dark flickering as the women come into mesmerising view. Smither is one of my much-admired literary elders; I salute her ability to make narrative humane and to make me feel the world.’
