Praise for Adrian Mitchell:

"Adrian Mitchell is no more naive than Stevie Smith, but like her he has the innocence of his own experience… real inner freedom and the courage of his own music. Among all the voices of the Court, a voice as welcome as Lear’s fool…Humour that can stick deep and stay funny."
—Ted Hughes

"Joyous, acrid and demotic tumbling lyricist Pied Piper determinedly singing us away from catastrophe."
—Angela Carter
