Review of Corridors
'Through these poems Kate Ruse pulls the reader into the disturbing and yet beautiful convolutions of two genius imaginations. First Corridors expresses, with a muscular lyrical poise, the psychically-charged physicality of the great Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky; and then goes on daringly, to poetically rummage around in the difficult existence of Franz Kafka. Although the collection is not drenched in Kafkan horror, there are moments when ...the wind and field mice scurry through disturbed channels.'
'This chapbook is an excellent piece of work - not just as a collection of poems but as a whole object as the illustrations of Chris Bent contribute so much to the enjoyment of reading ... in these economically straitened times do not hesitate to add Corridors to your collection - you will not spend a better £3.00 this side of the recession.'
