    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...

    An emotionally raw exploration of love, told in reverse. Brilliant; Tempest?s writing never disappoints. ...

    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...

    My least favourite Kate Tempest, but this still had some strong and beautiful poems in it that I could really connect with. ...

    'Outside the sky was falling in / our flesh had come away / We walked around in separate rooms / Looking for the day...' Even though this is a bit of a departure for her, I still love it. ...

    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 truly loved this collection. A raw, personal collection that examines heartbreak, new love, and old wounds. Starting at 'The End', Tempest's latest collection is perfect for anyone who has been in love and have had their heart broken in the process. Healing and honest, Running Upon t...

    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...

    3.5 /5 ?The whole world is a sick joke about how beautiful you are? ? Kate Tempest, Running Upon the Wires I adored Kate Tempest?s previous collections Hold Your Own and Let Them Eat Chaos, and they both hold very special places in my heart. Understandably, I was very exc...

    Kate Tempest?s latest work, a collection of poetry titled ?Running Upon The Wires?, is published today and is an incredible output from an artist consistently working at the top of her game. Progressing from a breakup to the formation and continuation of new love, and beautifully...

    It's you again as usual It was you before we met And it's still you, despite the fact That you have long since left // It's like Kate Tempest knew I spent the night crying and needed to read heartbreak poetry in the morning. ...

    Gently sad and full. She gets such an ache out of words. (listened to audiobook, her voice and lilt are just too good to keep pinned to the page) ...
