Colourful Places - a review of "Years Ago You Coloured Me"

Philip Dunkerley has reviewed J.S.Watts' recent collection, "Years Ago You Coloured Me" in issue 176 of Orbis (the Summer Issue, which is now out and available).

I'm afraid you'll have to buy issue 176 to read the entire review, but here is an extract or two to whet your appetite:

"The range is remarkable. Watts finds space for the metaphysical, the ekphrastic, eulogy and even an encomium to soup"  

"What is most enjoyable is her voice and imagination — black words on a white page that take you gently off into other, colourful, places."
