'These finely crafted poems by Jennifer Liston have a certain luminescence and timelessness about them. Some poems relate to a childhood spent in Ireland, while others reflect on contemporary Australian culture. Liston is equally at ease capturing the simplicity of nature and the intricacies of human relationships, as she is with themes philosophical or scientific.
'There is a quirky playfulness in Lead Skeletons . Liston's poems are sensual and evocative and make the reader stop and imagine.
'Who said humour can't cross cultures? It does in this book. Here is a poet who knows her muse like a friend and isn't afraid to have a chat and a pint with them. Listen to the effervescence.'
