‘His myriad sometimes quirky tabulation of objects fashions and local people in action has made Graham Fulton’s poetry a distinct personal telling of urban culture in the west of Scotland. Now this previously sometimes detached, sometimes sardonic voice has recorded a journey through the experience of seeing the onset of terminal illness, hospitalisation and death of a mother. I think the cumulative effect is extraordinary, the most convincing, honest, matter of fact and unsettling account of the nitty-gritty of “going through the daily motions” of confronting death and the estrangement of close family bereavement that I have read, certainly in my own culture. Graham Fulton’s poetry sequence carries the unmistakeable truth of genuine necessary art. ‘
Tom Leonard
