Urchin Belle is a debut collection that combines a genuine poetic originality with a piercing clarity. This is a voice born out of a life lived on the edges of society. The erotic and mundane collide with the surreal and extreme to produce a voice at once beguiling, shocking and entirely unapologetic. The stories of those living within and outside the system recur alongside the kind of raw erotic base need that leaves the reader wanting more.
