David McCooey launches Jo Langdon’s ‘Glass Life’

‘One of the strengths of Glass Life is that it evokes both a rich worldliness and an intense sense of the local. Like so many of her peers, Jo’s poetry is very much a transnational one, showing that when it comes to creativity, national borders are largely irrelevant. This collection beautifully represents the poet inhabiting both a Northern world (European, cold, distant) and a Southern World (Australian, warm, nearby).’
