Lorna Thorpe on Dancing to Motown:

“I’m immensely grateful to John Davies of Pighog for publishing my debut pamphlet, Dancing to Motown, so soon after I started writing poetry. The poems were written during a period of great disenchantment with life in general and love in particular – internet dating, what can I say? – so whenever I read them I’m pleasantly surprised by their energy. The book was the Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice in Autumn 2005.”

Praise for Dancing to Motown:

“Lorna Thorpe’s poems are fresh, bright and exciting. She writes of love, sex and the dating game with an appealing self-mocking humour and an honest integrity.”—Brendan Cleary
