A wonderful review of Exposure by Philip Lyons in Raceme, Issue 10, autumn/winter: ‘Rowell is an outstanding poet of place.’
 
‘Exposure has a number of meanings, but it’s rare to find a poet exposing his or her own vulnerability with such forensic honesty. Think Plath without the white heat.’
 
‘Buy this book by a poet who by rights should be more widely known, and read her finely crafted poems in which a whole landscape comes to life.’

Mimi Khalvati: ‘Naked’: Despite its difficult subject matter, this poem is written in a very relaxed vernacular, convincing
in its familiarity with FND and the explosive daily life in the centre. A poem that poignantly enhances our
understanding’.
