9781908998057: Dangerous Cakes

Poetry. "In these succinct and deceptively simple poems, Smith makes dancing and wine-glasses and summers gone into emblems of longing and lasting, with marvellous eldritch conviction. There is sweet (not over- sweet) nostalgia here, and wit, as well as a gleam of malevolent knowing peeping through the damask. What does it know? That the delightful parties do not go on forever."—Zachary Bos

"Elspeth Smith's poems are indeed 'dangerous cakes'; tiny parcels of benign delightfulness with danger at their centres. A patch of grass, a fresh covering of snow, an old shoe box take a sinister turn if you dare to join the party."—Lorraine Mariner

About the Author:

Elspeth Smith was born in Ceylon in 1928 to British parents and spent her childhood on a tea plantation. During the Second World War, she was sent to school in Edinburgh and then to St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex. She has lived and worked in Huddersfield for over forty years. Her pamphlet Wishbone was published by Smith / Doorstop (The Poetry Business) and two books of poetry, KEEPING BUSY and DANGEROUS CAKES were published by Eyewear Publishing.
