'Anthony Mills is a master of the metaphor who is also blessed with a musician's ear. His poems are often powerfully elegiac in tone, subtly suffused with a quiet grieving that always finds the perfect tone, is never maudlin and always linked to the concrete sensory details of the everyday as "recollected in tranquillity". These are spiritual poems in the best, non-anodyne, sense: infused with the sensory, open, probing, extremely rich in unexpected images that open new levels of imaginative resonance in the reader. A stunning, powerful debut collection. Read it, and, with me, eagerly await the next.' - Peter Lach-Newinsky

'Miracle of Days offers a range of finely observed poems which fearlessly expose life's heartwood - from imaginative sequences around the life of Francis of Assisi to delicate and insightful renderings of childhood, family, the deep poignancy of loss and misalignment as well as of deep connection. This is a lyric mode which marks the "beat of early years", tracing its reverberations in the attentive moments of reflective experience.' - Rose Lucas

'Anthony Mills' poetry explores a vast region of possibilities until it feels that nothing is outside his scope...this is poetry that soars and takes us with it.' - Greg Tome

'This first collection is strongly crafted and deeply empathetic...the poems know pain and exhilaration.' - Anna Kerdijk Nicholson
