`Moira Andrew's poems are funny, quirky and fresh. They offer shrewd observations of older generations with profound insight into the strangest regions of our own lives.
There are poems which paint landscapes of intense colour and fierce heat, brought together in Breakfast with Swallows.' Alison Brackenbury `Moira Andrew has an unusual gift of being able to write about everyday life and make it special.
I've heard her read and seen listeners' faces light up with recognition when she touches on something that illuminates their own experiences.
But she goes well beyond the everyday when she writes about her love of birds, flowers and the nature that surrounds us.' Caroline Carver`Breakfast with Swallows is Moira Andrew at her sensual best-nature, music, family, sex; all observed with the sharp eye and ready wit that Moira has in dollops.
She knows who she is and has the confidence to tell you, laying a trail with beautiful views and intriguing people.
This book is a feast and you'll want a long breakfast.' Dawn Bauling
