‘Trieste’ is one of the Laureate’s Choice series of pamphlets, chosen by Carol Ann Duffy.

‘A poet both sophisticated and lyrically charged who deploys imagery that is both precise and daring’.
– Carol Ann Duffy

‘Nichola Deane’s poems leave me with the very distinct feeling that what we have here is the work of a future English Elizabeth Bishop―sculptured, vocal and beautiful’.
– Douglas Dunn
