Actor and Author Hugh Fraser's review of Haunting Poems: 

Haunting Indeed, 9th May 2018.  

Larissa Matharu's heartfelt evocations of her attempts to understand, assimilate and come to terms with the sexual abuse she suffered as a child, together with her accounts in prose of the cold and distant treatment she received from her family, make for a most moving and salutary read. When this last is balanced by her account of what happened to her father both as a child and an adult, the book becomes even more powerfully disturbing. This is truly enthralling collection of poems and prose.

Christine H wrote (via email) of reading Haunting Poems "The book is one that I will never forget reading, which shifts the ground and opens the mind and energises the being. It is brave and cathartic and beautifully produced, making it very accessible."
