'The language is muscular, the voice commanding' – Zoë Brigley

‘The way out of the title isn't an exit – more like being outbound on a journey. The destination of each poem, whether in another country or at home, in the past or in the body itself, is to be entirely, physically present. As one poem says, “The way out is here.”’ – Philip Gross
