The ordinary and the extraordinary come together in Mrs Marvellous – poems about strange gods, cling film and stars, a cleaner in a hospital, a man in a biscuit tin. Victoria Pugh pricks at the senses to reveal what lies beneath. the surface.
‘Victoria Pugh invents unexpected characters and offers fables – often surreal – about their lives. The great strength of this writing is the subtle way in which she marries originality and wit with human dilemma and poignant emotion. Mrs. Marvellous is an exciting debut.’ ~ Myra Schneider (The Poetry School)
‘Victoria Pugh writes witty, delicate poems capable of real insight and surprise. Hers is a distinctive new voice.’ ~ Michael Symmons Roberts (Whitbread Poetry Award winner)
