About this title:  

Memory Tree is crammed with imagery, giving glimpses of the lives of dog walkers, cleaners, miner’s wives, and builders. Culshaw’s people are the locals – ‘there’s rain, there’s sky dishes, small back gardens/ a neighbour who swops him a handshake’. Gareth Culshaw has an alert, original eye, and a tumbling, energising use of metaphor – ‘There’s a light behind each eye, maybe shines, or dims/ with each drag of his rollie’. This is a collection to savour.
– Jean Atkin

The High Window gave Memory Tree a glowing review.
