“Johnstone’s poems are entertaining, erotic, and dangerous, and at times brute in their clean, heart-wrenching details.”—Mansfield Review

“Johnstone simply does not miss opportunities to drive home his music, to exploit each vowel’s potential to ring and electrify its neighbours.”—Maple Tree Literary Supplement
