Kit Caless from Influx Press says:
Rachel Long's My Darling from the Lions was far and away my favourite book of poetry published this year. I love the simplicity of her language, it does brilliant work carrying heavy emotion and atmosphere. Long sets scenes with the minimum of fuss and leaves her poems with inordinately satisfactory flourishes. Her voice is wonderfully distinctive, her words will linger in your head long after you have finished reading. I'm still dipping in and out of this book, which is always a good sign. Also, and this sounds a bit spurious, there are lots of poems to read! So many collections feel too light, but this is a perfect length.
