“[‘The Rabbit’ is] an immediately likeable story, beautifully crafted,
elegantly written with all the arts of a born storyteller…
A writer of real promise.”

“Becky Tipper’s ‘Birth Stories’… is a truly excellent piece of writing…
Anybody who has ever trotted out the cliché ‘all that matters is
a healthy baby’ should be made to read this work…”

Becky Tipper’s ‘Meeting the Lobster’ genuinely takes the reader
through a journey of increasing emotional identification…”

“There were surprises too, pieces that took my breath away
with their sheer inventiveness, such as… Becky Tipper’s story
‘Expecting’ about a baby who wants to remain in the womb”
