‘Love Me Do’ offers a fresh and distinctive look at how we live our lives. Lydia Macpherson’s poems are closely observed, tender, witty and often intensely personal, with subjects ranging from knitting to the far reaches of space, via a Voodoo Barbie and a skeleton under the bed.
‘Lydia Macpherson's poems take us close to the experience of living – its griefs as well as its pleasures – without any self-pity or unnecessary lingering. They're tough as well as vulnerable – and all the better for it, because in their resilience they engage with the wide world, and ourselves in it.’ —Andrew Motion
‘Lydia Macpherson’s poems display precision, nous, attractive phrasemaking, an engaging wit, and a debut as surefooted and enjoyable as this deserves to find many readers.’ —Paul Farley
