“The only problem with Blood Oranges is that when one starts talking about it, one can not stop… A cracking book.” - Macdara Woods
“An extraordinary poetic journey… it gestures toward future poetic excavations into history’s zest and sorrow, past known and unfamiliar denominations, down through hitherto un-breached layers.” - Billy Ramsell
“Dylan’s poetry is full of life and death, of flesh and seeds, fertility and of constant renewal and ever present extinction. It is a meditation on the persistence of violence, and the parallel persistence of life.” - Sarah Clancy
