'Thatcher’s poems can be nostalgic and delicious in their visualisations…In these echoes of capturing, cradling, holding — Thatcher suggests that the speaker’s temptations aren’t drugs, or fire, but deeply-felt connections, touches, and caresses. There might never be enough.’
In their latest issue, Poetry London has given Christina Thatcher's second poetry collection, How to Carry Fire, a glowing review!
In this perfect summing-up: 'Thatcher suggests that the speaker's temptations aren't drugs, or fire, but deeply-felt conections, touches, and caresses. There might never be enough.' they capture the burning heart of this fine collection.
