Reviews

The Loutra Hotel: ‘A poet whom I admire.’
—Patricia Oxley, Acumen;

‘Wilson [is] a sharp-eyed observer of the contemporary scene.’
—Robert Nye, The Scotsman.

The Happy Land: ‘an extremely interesting series... affectionate and agreeable.’
—Allan Massie, The Sunday Times

Cellos in Hell: ‘...well worth reading... The writing is firm, well-directed, economical.’
—Edwin Morgan, Cencrastus;

‘...technically-accomplished, and highly readable ... unflinching ... grittily contemporary...’
—Mario Relich, Lines Review;

‘These are tough-imaged poems, yet well-crafted; formal and free verse being used as and when the occasion arises... The poems which reflect the conformity of suburbia, both in a mental and physical sense, are excellent. Wilson seems to have a real sense of what poetry is about.’
—Patricia Oxley, Acumen;

‘I find Jim C Wilson’s poems subtle yet unpretentious, humorous yet realistic.’
—Tessa Ransford

Paper Run: ‘A cracker of a little collection by a widely published and too-little known poet’
—Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
