From reviews of Paragraphs at the End of the World

‘Expressionism prevails in Graham Fulton’s stunning sequence of prose-poems.

Its Central Belt beat and the pace seems impossible to sustain but bloody hell,

it never flags and the locations and visions are so varied that you feel none could

be left out.’

Ian Stephen, Northwords Now 

From reviews of Upside Down Heart

‘Disarmingly, bewitchingly tender. One of this work’s most defining qualities

is its seeming immunity to cloy, something, rather like Edwin Morgan, that

makes him a sensational and original poet of love.’

Gutter Magazine 

From reviews of One Day in the Life of Jimmy Denisovich

‘Striking and precise imagery … refined lyricism. Fulton is a poet who seems to speak

from inside the moment, and some of these poems are endowed with the aim of picking

apart time itself, to analyze, escape from, or overcome it.’
