First Taste is brimming with domestic luminosity. These poems explore the terrain of love and desire, parent and child, ecstasy and death and reveal the depth of Johnson’s voice. Her poems teach us not only to accept, but to feel blessed by the complexity of humanity, the terrible mysteries of life. You will not forget ‘The facts’ nor that ‘first taste of butterscotch sauce’. Johnson renders her secrets in language vivid and strong. - Graham Nunn
