IN VITRO - LAURA SOLOMON
in vitro presents fresh poems on a wide variety of subjects from in vitro experiments, vampire bats, Janet Frame and earthquakes to Pythia getting the blues and Guy Fawkes giving his sincerest apology.

“Witty, clear-edged, both lemon-sharp and seductive,
Laura Solomon is a writer to watch.” – Maggie Gee,
