Things I Did While I Was Dead packs a powerful punch." - Jackie Kay MBE, poet & novelist; "One of the country's finest performance poets." - Apples and Snakes; "She is the mistress of language, whether it's making you laugh or informing your emotions. Here is a courageous artist with guile and expertise in equal measure." - Gerry Potter, poet & playwright; "A national treasure." - Dead Good Poets Society
