Kathrine Sowerby

“Kathrine Sowerby works language like a painter, shaping an impasto of wisdom and bewilderment in which ‘everything is possible’: for a young woman dying in the snow, for characters named Apple, Sun and Meaning, for black cats, for children and our feverish attempts to raise them well, to raise them safely. Tired Blue Mountain has a synesthetic wonder and delight in the colours of grief and magic, it is a fearless search for love and understanding.”

Michael Scott

“As if plundering her memory Scott hides entire screenplays in the gaps between his words. Missing conjunctions speak volumes. This man could write the sequel to Citizen Kane on the back of a fag packet, and still surpass the original...”

"Cartier-Bresson's photographs famously capture a "decisive moment", supposedly spontaneously. I wanted to unpick and explore that moment - and its importance - in narratives and internal or external monologues. I've used four of my favourites - Taxi Drivers (Berlin, 1931), Pont de l’Europe (Paris, 1932); Tug-boat pilots on the Rhine (West Germany, 1956); La Villette (Paris, 1929) - creating four sequences, with elements of realism, surrealism and hyperrealism." Paul Sutton

“So good to discover Paul Sutton’s poems, like bitter, burning pole stars guiding us through the wastelands of Regia Anglorum."
