Reviews

[Charly] is turning a new generation on to poetry’ The Telegraph

Praise for She Must Be Mad

‘Divine.’ Cecelia Ahern

‘Charly constantly astounds me with how inspired she is. It can be patronizing to mention someone’s age when they are very young, as if that’s their only USP; but it’s relevant here, because Charly’s poetry really encapsulates what it is to be a young woman. All the tensions and anxieties and new discoveries.’ Pandora Sykes

‘Charly is social media’s answer to Carol Ann Duffy, if Carol Ann Duffy asked the question: “How can I enjoy poetry whilst checking my Instagram feed on the toilet?” She’s funny and heartfelt and brilliant, she always seems to know how to make you feel less alone.’ Sunday Times STYLE

‘Poetry meets mental health in Charly Cox’s brave and beautiful She Must Be Mad.’ Stylist Magazine

‘Relatable and funny, [Charly’s] work champions young women trying to navigate the modern world.’ ELLE

‘Instagram poetry sensation Charly Cox translates the plights, worries, thoughts and feelings of modern women into accessible short reads of prose and poems that have you laughing, crying and questioning your own life in no time. With delicate prose that reveals the reality of coming-of-age in an overwhelmingly honest and open personal tale, it's packed full of emotion and a brilliant weekend read.’ Glamour online

‘I fell in love with Cox's honesty and sharp sense of style’ The Pool

‘Witty and heartfelt’ Standard Online

‘Staggeringly impressive. Her debut collection demonstrated her phenomenal skill and unique tone which is bringing poetry to a new generation.’ ELLE online
