Praise for in the country garden /the end of england:


In Young's country garden invitations, fantasies & distortions sprout up amongst murdered petals, the weeds act of 1959, & lovers spittle-thick in the hawthorn. While wandering errantly towards and away from narrative, 90s gamer culture & Arthurian representations, intervals of time decay & language deserts colonial taxonomies. the end of england is a back/slashing/escape/sequence of grotesque erotics that pulls down garden walls, & breeches, perverting & renewing our sense of the pastoral.

鈥 declan wiffen


In a feverfew dream somewhere between Penda鈥檚 Fen and Riddley Walker, Jack Young鈥檚 pamphlet is a morderous and joyful denaturing of the garden as metonym for England. I marvelled to watch its illicit crops 鈥 Latin taxonomy, Arthurian folly and 90s arcadia 鈥 mutate into an effervescent meadow, a queer & borderless botania.

Praise for All in Animal Time


All in Animal Time is a trove of poetic enthusiasms for our present world, in all its thrilling detail 鈥 from watery sensations of dew, saliva, summer tears and dregs, to poems of the body in which 鈥減lush curves sway鈥, to speculations on the dietary needs of black holes, to conversations with inflatable crocodiles. These are breathless, abundant poems that illuminate new possibilities for joy, for sadness, for transcendence and for assortment 鈥 all told in 脫lafsd贸ttir鈥檚 boldly inventive voice. It is a hairy miracle of a collection, of fizzing and sparkling fervour.

鈥 Poppy Cockburn


Eins og kl贸kur einkasp忙jari r忙冒ur Kar贸l铆na g谩tuna. H煤n flettir ofan af tungum谩linu og opinberar au冒leg冒 hversdagsleikans. Allt 镁etta undarlega, dulda og fallega, ekkert sleppur undan augliti hennar. 脼essi lj贸冒 tendra lj贸saperuna yfir h枚f冒i lesandans, 镁a冒 er s枚nn, s枚nn, s枚nn unun a冒 lesa a冒 镁au.


Like a clever detective, Kar贸l铆na solves the mystery. She exposes language and unveils the abundance concealed in ordinary life. All things peculiar, slinky and beautiful, nothing escapes her keen eye. These poems illuminate the lightbulb above the reader鈥檚 head, they are a true, true, true joy to read.

鈥 Brynja Hj谩lmsd贸ttir


I don鈥檛 drink but I鈥檓 drunk reading All in Animal Time. Confused, embarrassed, want to tell everyone I love them, chase things smaller than me, and also want to squirrel up in a ball and cry. In this crittery state, the precipitation of 脫lafsd贸ttir鈥檚 poems forms a mist/film/skin all over what Steirischer Herbst calls 鈥渂ody luggage鈥, the instinctive judders we experience in and through language. 脫lafsd贸ttir鈥檚 language is glassy, putty-like and gungy all at once: these poems gorgeously inconsonant and shut-the-front-door.
