The other day I wrote an OPOI – ‘one point of interest’ – review for Sphinx, mostly focusing on the theme of ‘contemporary obsolescence’ in a stand-out poem in Emma Simon’s brilliant, prize-winning Smith|Doorstop pamphlet, The Odds. The review was published yesterday. You can read more about what an OPOI consists of here.

Just wanted to say that I’m catching up on my reading and when I got the headline in this review I had to stand up and applaud. Also, what an excellent review; it’s made me want to buy the book.
I couldn’t resist the pun! Thanks for you kind words, Mat. They’re easier to write when the poems are so good!
