A round-up of reviews so far for The Dogs of Humanity. Many thanks to the reviewers and site editors for these kind words.
"...a dredging up of emotions, feelings and darkness.... full of separation, or the protagonists pulling away from the world around them."
Mat Riches reviews Dogs for London Grip
"There is a very human need to be social and connect... [t]he analogies and ambiguities are thought-provoking and encourage readers to look again at familiar situations and blur the boundaries between animals and humans... timely and engaging."
Emma Lee reviews Dogs for The Blue Nib
"In poems that are inventive and beguiling, Dardis creates a starkly insightful version of the present, using fresh, direct language... [t]he voice in these poems is insightful, urgent but compassionate, making the collection an enjoyable but unsettling read."
