'Impossible not to be moved by these restless, shifting poems… This is a beautifully balanced work, a collection that is both unnervingly strange yet also life-affirmingly human.' (Anna Crowe - on Unmapped)

'beautiful, lyrical work... a vision which is perhaps nearer the truth than we know.' (Meg Bateman - on Little Forks / Forcan Beaga)
'In these difficult times we urgently need a poet with
the skill and foresight to look beyond the clutter and
write about what really needs said. Sharp is that poet.
Visionary. Oracular. Fearless. Compelling. There are
plenty of adjectives that apply to her work. She justifies
and exceeds them all.' (John Glenday - on Rough Currency)
'A high-risk play – more great flight of lyricism than
conventional drama… downright thrilling…
At times, Sharp’s poetry is simply immense.'
(Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman**** - on The Air That
Carries The Weight)

Rebecca Sharp is a writer whose practice encompasses text,
performance, visual and collaborative projects.
'Sharp’s time and character shifts create an ever-altering mosaic of changing moods and chronologies over which both writer and actors maintain seemingly effortless control. ...a very considerable achievement, creating a distinctive and thought-provoking piece where linearity and literalism would have utterly failed to do so.' (Bill Dunlop, Edinburgh Guide **** - on The Air That Carries The Weight)
