"Almost any poetry reader - indeed, any reader - would be pushed not to find something to enjoy in Sheenagh Pugh's Later Selected poems.[...] a voice worth listening to. - Ben Wlkinson, Poetry Review "Pugh's poems are often ticking shells, primed by politics and passion [...] intense as opera, irreconcilable truths confront the reader. What is this but poetry? Its story has not ended. I look forward hungrily to the next chapter' - Alison Brackenbury, Poetry Wales "In Long-Haul Travellers we could see the rich new creations of a mature poet, but this selection reminds us how much, and what fine work went before. Her readers can look forward eagerly to word of Sheenagh Pugh's future travels. "
