I am really enjoying the wit,humour and underlying sadness of the poems in her second collection Not in These shoes - my lucky find on Sunday.
My favourite poem is Crayfish Tail Salsa - based I suspect on a real experience of working in a hotel and how exploited you can be as a young person.
My copy of the book has the last couple of pages missing but fortunately the Picador blog has the complete version of her poem Doing time and the story which inspired it.
