Georgia Fearn, writing in New Welsh Reader, found much to admire in Kittie Belltree's debut poetry collection Sliced Tongue and Pearl Cufflinks:
'This poetry will make your heart sink; form lumps in your throat that will be broken by an unexpected snicker at Belltree wit. The collection paints perhaps one of the most haunting yet poignant representations of real life that I have ever experienced in poetry. Belltree is almost cruel in her unpleasant and vicious authenticity, yet this is what makes the poetry so moving. It is uncomfortable, it is intruding, and it is poetry that will undoubtedly change your perception of modern reality.'
Kittie and her daughter, cover designer Lia, also featured in the Tivyside recently:
Kittie Belltree will be reading with Susie Wild at the Cellar Bards in Cardigan on 28 February.
