“A thoroughly enjoyable read. Can’t put her down. How often does poetry do that to you?”– Peter Finch, Planet

“These are interesting, probing poems, saying difficult things, there’s nothing monotonous… Williams is a writer who knows what she’s doing, and makes a thoroughly good job of it. Her accessibility may pleasantly surprise the poetically timid, but there’s much more to The Latin Master’s Story than that.” – R.V. Bailey

“…a dryness matching U.A. Fanthorpe” – Orbis

“I like the fact that your poems have real content and don’t have any truck with the fashionable nonsense of ‘calculated incoherence’, avoidance of ‘closure’ and the rest of the post-modern nonsense.” – Vernon Scannell
