About Composition in White:

"S.J. Litherland's latest collection, her seventh, is a delight. Her consummate control of language allows her undiminished passion, intelligence and imagination to blaze on every page. Perhaps her physical muscles are 'waning like skies at dusk', but her poetry muscles are lithe and limber, and her poet's eye as diamond sharp and unsentimental as ever. Breathtaking."
—Jo Colley
