High praise for Psychomachia:

“accompanied by footnotes of a morbid Walk of Fame, Psychomachia is the ultimate celebration of the rock n roll death trip, set in 90s indulgence and decadence when Fashion Yin and Rock n Roll Yang had a baby and called it Heroin Chic”
Jim Sclavunos, Bad Seed, Mu Magazine

“a punk novel that makes me nostalgic for a life I never knew”
Rob Doyle

“Nails 90s London with savage precision. Highly, deeply recommended. It made me gasp, gurn, blanche, howl with laughter and marvel at its brilliance”  
DJ Stuart Whoo

“A warrior for writing it like it really was”  
Gail Porter

“Fantastic - is it about The Libertines?”
Bill Drummond, The KLF

“The most brutal opening words I’ve ever read”
Geraldine Beskin, Atlantis Bookshop

Rachel Newsome, former editor Dazed & Confused

“Sometime during the 90s, behind the hedonism, clothes, music and ambition lurked something truly malignant....Kirsty Allison's debut novel is a superb and harrowing read.”
Graham Bendel, New Statesman

Praise for the sold out Now is Now (poetry & lyrics since 2007), Cold Lips

“The modern Patti Smith”
Johny Brown, The Band of Holy Joy

“effortlessly illuminates  with ancient obsidian & the lyrical precision of winds carving mountains”Malik Ameer Crumpler

“the most rock n roll poet of our time. Up there with Bukowski, Burroughs & Crowley”
Kelli Ali

“Kirsty Allison’s writing traverses a haunted landscape where magic is entwined with the mundane, romance embraces horror, and  the vulgar cavorts with the sublime…”
Jim Sclavunos
