With Breadcrumbs, Deborah Harvey's poetry shifts from the landscape and stories of her native West Country into a darker, inner terrain of memory, dream and fairy tale. Here, in the words of Alan Garner, we are in mythic time, where everything is simultaneously present, and each poem is both a waymark through the wildwood and the seed for a forest of truths.  

'These are important poems. They carry us through despair and hope, through myths and imaginings, through violence and insight to deliver us to a place where we are not only enriched but wiser. Harvey's poems are astute, well-crafted and delivered with a calm certainty that is hard-won by any poet. Witty, surreal and above all redemptive, this book uncovers truth after truth and, like stars, sets them shining.'                ALYSON HALLETT                                                                                

'I think very highly of Deborah Harvey's work. Her honesty draws you in because Harvey knows that honesty is itself an art form. It needs to be strongly crafted; it is a crafted matter; and she makes a persuasive poetry from the matter of experience.'               DAVID MORLEY
