These Are The Lies I Told You

“Hammerton’s poetry tells stories we never tire of living and reliving especially when told new. Her light, sometimes witty, understated control of words, make this telling deliciously new.” The Cape Times

“Hammerton is an anatomist of romantic love, from the rumpled hotel sheets of lust to the shared tattoos of intimacy. With its roller-coaster ride of erotica, sensuality, heartbreak and laugh out loud hilarity, These are the lies I told you is a debut volume destined to break sales records. The Marian Keyes of poetry has arrived.” Finuala Dowling

“Hammerton’s poetry ranges over the themes of relationships, of that often difficult thorn-strewn path of love gained, and then love lost. But it’s her amusing, wry funny voice that is such a delightful surprise. Her poetry is amusing, a little droll and, laugh-out-loud funny.” Arja Salafranca
