REVIEWS for ‘Catching the Cascade’

“Lyalls paints a breathless montage of warm atmospheric images to absorb…there isn’t a word wasted as each road-tested poem presents a taught stronghold on the page”.

(full review at www.booktrust.org.uk/show/review/catchingthecascade)

“The quality that shines through this slim volume is a playful sense of fun…Lyalls has an unerring and endearing sense of fun”

Patrick Neate (2001 Costa/whitbread Novel Prize winner)
writing in the London Magazine.

“I very much enjoyed your deadpan, sparse-parse-verse. Matzeltov’


My children’s collection ‘A funny Thing Happened’ (with an introduction by Michael Rosen 2019.) ‘…The funny thing about the world is that we sometimes don’t notice it, Paul poems stop and make you notice it, that’s his kind of magic’.
– published By Caboodle Books

‘”Pacey Poetry packs punch…The whole show is shot through with the absolute confidence in the power of poetry to amuse, move and transform lives…proof that Paul Lyalls has arrived”
