Jeremy Reed; poet and writer, says: 'Paul Hawkins has picked up Tom Raworth's energised quirky verbal speed: his rich, fractured, spatialised language drives in and on. I like it.'


Tony White, novelist, writer and editor, says: 'Oulipian divination meets Metro cut-up. The Crash crash-edited into resistance rhythms, cash-in-hand concrete typography, mapping the run-off and the rackets from Claremont Road to Cameron, then cleaned out with half a brick. What looked like a wall, turns out to be a wall of sound; or a barricade. Tip #366: Hawkins is unstoppable.'
