    More lesbian themed contemporary poems. I think they?d all be better if I heard Kate read theme out. My favourites were ?Hanging out with your friends at the important social occasion? & ?Hormonising?. ...

    I've loved each of Kate Tempest's previous books of poetry, so I had high expectations for this, her newest collection. Unfortunately, I found myself rather disappointed by her efforts this time ("efforts" sounds dismissive as I look at the word I've written, and I'm not inclined to ch...

    I honestly cannot rate this. I am a super fan of Kate Tempest's poetry and I love everything she touches, I'd tattoo Let Them it Chaos in its entirety on my face if it fit, honestly. This collection, though, this collection is something else. It's beautiful, the images are nitid and au...

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres... I?m an uber fan of Kate Tempest and could not wait to listen to her latest poetry collection. Tempest is an amazing performer and I would prefer to listen to her rather than just read her words. Running upon the Wires was a treat. This is v...

    Kate Tempest is one of my favourite contemporary poets (and Hold Your Own one of my favourite poetry books). Thus my expectations were high. In the past Tempest took Greek myths, current political affairs and close observations of people to spin gripping tales. Running Upon The Wires i...

    Running Upon The Wires is a departure from Kate Tempest's usual type of poetry in its very personal subject matter. Tempest writes about her relationships with other women and the collection goes in reverse order, from the end, to the middle, to the beginning of her partnership. As alw...

    I?m a big fan of this multi talented writer and her new collection of love poems does not disappoint. I?d recommend listening to the podcast with her poetry editor, where they chat about the process of writing and editing this collection (Guardian Books podcast) as it gives some in...

    The poetess is estranged from the reader, simply by investing in a relentlessly, inconsequential form. Love? love is tentative, predatory, the heart must be given absent effusive embarrassments, acts of intimacy exploratory and displayed true love achingly. Self-love, o...

    3.5 stars As someone who impulsively buys anything on the Poetry shelf at my local Waterstones, I?m pleasantly surprised to have stumbled upon an LGBT collection. Out of the Kate Tempest books I have read, this is by far the one that hits closest to home. I really enjoyed this o...

    I read this mostly in one bus journey from work while listening to a Marika Hackman, because it felt appropriate. The two seem pretty close together in the way they write about relationships especially as this book's about the breakdown of a relationship, the start of a new one and the...

    I first became aware of this volume of poetry through a blog post by Chris Riddell, my favourite illustrator. He had created an illustration around the text of the first poem, "Awake all night thinking of you." Reading that first poem, it instantly struck a cord with me. This volume of...

    A poem collection from Kate Tempest. I have not read much poetry before but this year I have been introduced to Hollie McNish, Carol Anne Duffy and now Kate Tempest. The subject is love and relationships. It is written in three parts,the breakdown of a relationship, the messy bit in...
