"This is a collection of poems whose narratives reach far beyond each snapshot. The tales are set in the 50’s and 70’s and celebrate strong, unconventional women who enjoy, amongst other events, a weekly dalliance with the local bobby, cat fights in a car park over some bloke, or serially sleeping with husbands who don’t belong to them! ... Nothing changes in the free love 1970’s, where first romantic fumblings lead to marriage then betrayal and hurt. ...Such vibrant women, many of whom ultimately learn to dance in a red dress or turn cartwheels in celebration of their new-found independence."
