Review of Two stops short of Barking in Tentacular magazine

Gboyega Odubanjo's book Two stops short of Barking has been reviewed in Issue 8 of Tentacular, an online poetry, responses and arts magazine.

Speaking about the pamphlets' combination of poetry and interviews, SK Grout writes: "These interviews provide an interesting contrast and parallel to the poems; readers cannot know whether the poems or the conversations came first, but both speak to the power and inspiration of home on creative practice."
