When the back cover of a collection of poetry almost makes me weep in the middle of my local Waterstones, I know I’ve found something special. With In a Dream You Saw a Way to Survive, I wasn’t disappointed. Each poem is a raw, unflinching commitment to lay bare difficult times in von Radics’s life. It felt I’d been invited into conversations I wouldn’t normally hear, and it was there that I found snippets of very familiar pain. During almost every poem I was on the precipice of great sadness, comforted by a gentle voice that knew the ache inside.
