This is news observed with so discerning an eye that marvellous detail emerges within the poetry. Read her book. We are the richer for it.” Jon Snow, Channel 4 News “Unlike the daily news that fades from view, Jude Cowan's images linger in the memory. She creates poetry which finds the humanity amid the horror of our times. Her work is outstanding.” Bill Neely, ITN News/NBC News
