Reviews for Tongues of Fire –
‘I read Tongues of Fire on my way home and just re-read it, it’s glorious! Full of laughter, joy, sorrow, pain, anger and love. You’re a stunning poet’ – Robert Francis
‘Well Jane Burn Storybook Art -I didn’t want to buy your book ‘Tongues of Fire’ ,and just skim over it with eyes half open — wanted to savour it … so made mayself a cup of tea and took it back to bed for a proper slow Saturday morning read – at first I couldn’t get beyond ‘Pauline’s Knickers’
– just wanted to read it over and over – so full over layers and powerful, images. Every page is full of humanity with no hiding place – you force the reader to look and to care about,’ Where they go to die’ and ‘Audrey’s Cellulitis’ most of all I want to go to the party where I can meet all those inhabitants of Seaham Cemetery
( though maybe not yet awhile : ) ) Surely there’s a drama in the making there! ‘ – Janet Philo
‘This is a pamphlet worth having, Jane Burn does fresh and astonishing things with language whilst connecting to deep traditions, there is a fascinating collision between the modern and the metaphysical in her work I recommend you purchase a copy.’ – Andy Willoughby
