Excerpt from the book: "Crime of Passion" - the frame can't contain the enormity of Lana Turner's chiselled head, all that agitated recollection colliding with the bliss of technicolour in a series of lurid flashbacks. Don't save your decolletage for a gala, don't wait up in a palatial home. According to you, a pathological liar, the letter of apology is in the mail with an autographed studio portrait. Just as every drunk has a manuscript, unlimited emotions need chemical assistance to achieve a plateau of friendliness. Blushing can be a mark of respect but in this case, I was past caring. Anyone can get trigger-happy with the right cocktail of provocation. The body lands at the foot of the stairs and inspires a Continental sojourn with time-lapse photography and painted scenes better than a ticket to the opera.

MEDIA REVIEWS

What Kate Lilley gives us is the richness and vigour of the English Renaissance in the service of a complex set of postmodern concerns; scholarship as a handmaiden to art; and literature galvanised by passion. What we get is an alert, sharp-edged contemporary poetry, electric with allusion and irony, compulsively readable.

-- John Tranter * Jacket Magazine *

Few things more exhilarating than ace work like Kate Lilley's

-- Susan Wheeler * Poetryetc *

Lilley's intelligence, scrupulousness and humour are apparent in every line of this book.

-- Gig Ryan * The Age *
