Praise for Rupture:

The directness and simplicity of these poems, beautifully arranged as stages in a recovery, carry the urgency, honesty and celebration of a life reclaimed.

JOAN LONDON

 

The poems that comprise Rupture are lucid, deft, unapologetic, forthright. There are images and lines that are literally breath-taking, stanzas that punch with wisdom, and whole poems that linger long after the book is finished.

ANDREA GOLDSMITH

 

Despite the serious nature of her predicament, Varga handles her material with a light touch; the result is a luminousness that is carried over into subsequent sections ringing with delicate description and wistful meditations.

WILLIAM YEOMAN, THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

 

Varga’s poems are, as Andrea Goldsmith says on the back cover of this book, “unapologetic” and “forthright”. These two characteristics, along with Varga’s sharp eye for detail, are, for the moment, considerable — and sufficient — virtues.
