‘Jacqueline Buswell’s first collection of poems is a very solid contribution to contemporary Australian poetry. Hers is a journey with eyes wide open, a well-tuned voice and firm steps into evocations and ironic reflections. A great fusion of rhythms and forms, themes and personal experiences. Lucidity and compassion.’ – Mario Licón Cabrera
Jessica Raschke uses words as shards, reflecting fragmented emotional states. Her poems in this collection, Luscious Glass Cage, glisten with confidence as they ricochet between the abstract and the deeply felt. But feelings are seen as capable of deception and, like reflections in a mirror, they are reversed and distorted.
