Recently there have been some great reviews of Place Waste Dissent;

‘. . . the book is stamped with left-field credentials: Gee Vaucheresque monochrome montages of photos, police documents, agitprop fliers and eviction notices circumscribe and blend into the verse itself . . .’
Peter Boughton in Minor Literatures

‘. . . the jagged edges of Hawkins’ verse collages express heated moments of collision and confusion during the opposition to evictions which turned out to be a foretaste of the kind of Neo-Liberal urban enclosure that blights London today . . . ‘ Stephen E. Hunt for International Times

‘ . . . it is the strength of the presentation that gives this book its edge. It is performance art on the page, an installation with time as the third dimension rather than space . . . ‘ 
Jackie Law at Never Imitate
