Cairns offers the reader a consistently enchanting and sublime collection of poems and photographs which chart the tender tango of a relationship. Her images, by turns fraught and whimsical, conspire to capture the love and fear, the joy and pain, that inhabit us all. Please take care of this book deserves a place on every shelf.’

"The philosophy of this book speaks, not only, to the soul, but also to the sense of tradition, sentimentality and ownership that only a printed book can generate. It's ethos is simple - we own nothing, everything is borrowed and it is our job as generators and recorders of social history, to be the custodians of all, be it words, images or more profoundly each other. Everyone needs to read this book... it's soul food!

Your work is exquisite. Now you must read it aloud and share it around the globe.

I liked your book very much – nice images and progression of mood, and the photos were evocative – humorous and at the same time wistful, bleak, even.

The author's starkly contrasted use of literal photography and evocative poetry provides a fascinating view of the contemporary meld of literature, emotion and life.
