    I've been lucky enough to get some really lovely reviews - check them out below. Thanks to Sabotage and The Scottish Review of Books for taking the time to write them!

    “[Treasure in the History of Things] is gorgeous... [The poetry has] a self-awareness coupled with wonder at nature that makes it rather charming. There should be more poets who can both marvel at anthropomorphised wind that ‘scrawls its name across my cheeks’ and discuss astronomers’ wavelengths.” Dana Bubulj, Sabotage Reviews

    “[Katherine McMahon is] a mellifluous performer... [Treasure in The History of Things contains] some very beautiful and thoughtful pieces.” Elizabeth Rimmer, The Scottish Review of Books (tinyurl.com/treasurescottishreviewofbooks)
