“Men push west and east and up and Carey Toane chronicles their folly. The Crystal Palace provides unsettling reminders that no corner of the earth is untouched by our need to roam and consume. How good it is to be redeemed by poetry, a tender song launched straight into the darkness.” (Lisa Jarnot, author of Black Dog Songs and Night Scenes)
