"My over-riding impression of Quintavalle’s work, for all of his highly enjoyable formal experimentation, is that he is a poet who is willing to look at the world square on, for better or for worse, not because he can necessarily change it, but because the poet has no other choice if he is to be a poet at all." 

This is from David Clarke's very positive review of my new collection, Weather Derivatives.  The review is published in the latest number of Lunar Poetry which you can purchase here (paper copies cost £3, .pdf is pay-what-you-like).  

Weather Derivatives is published by Eyewear Publishing.
