"Wells chews over language in a satisfyingly meticulous way, combing through assonance and etymologies until you are delivered of each poem feeling thoroughly worked out. I'm in love with the saltiness of this verse, the crunchy shingle-under-foot-ness of it all."
Anna Cathenka

"Take a deep breath before you enter this world of heather and surf – a world that is real and strange, rendered in "blue's bestest grammar". Here is poetry that is striking and thrillingly refreshing. Complete immersion is recommended."
Emily Hasler

"Intelligent, sharp, innovative and playful, Wells creates a looking-glass world and invites the reader to (re)examine the constructions of both language and self. Alive to the possibilities and falsities enacted through poetic language and form, these adept and aware poems move like water."
- Petra Kamula
