From the first poem where she places her grandparents young and in love right in front of us, to 'she's doing the dishes' where in a tongue in cheek delivery she eroticises a simple household chore to the last poem 'not just a personal ad,' the poet casts an unapologetically direct and witty eye on life's complexity.

Vittoria repetto is a subtle poet who has preserved her working class sensibility and her taste for the actual language of daily life, while maintaining an acute ear for literary echoes. From the first poem where she places her grandparents young and in love right in front of us, to 'she's doing the dishes' where in a tongue in cheek delivery she eroticises a simple household chore to the last poem 'not just a personal ad,' Vittoria repetto casts an unapologetically direct and witty eye on life's complexity. These are poems that paint unforgettable moments within unforgettable scenes.
