About the Author:

ADAM O'RIORDAN was born in Manchester in 1982 and read English at Oxford University. He studied poetry under Michael Donaghy and Andrew Motion, and was awarded the inaugural Peters, Fraser and Dunlop poetry prize and an Eric Gregory Award. In 2008, he was poet-in-residence at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere, the youngest poet to hold that post. In the Flesh includes his sequence, 'Home', a series of thematically linked sonnets inspired by Dove House, and selected by the Poetry Book Society as its pamphlet choice in 2009.

Review:

"O'Riordan's fresh eyes have turned up some beautiful bits of writing" Dazed and Confused "The delicate introduction makes falling in love seem like the most sensible way to spend your time" Elle "Life is nothing without literature, whether taken in snippets...or in satisfying chunks, like the contents of the new anthology When Love Speaks...plenty to choose from in this collection" -- Bel Mooney Daily Mail "Far more, and better, than the routine Valentine's anthology...rings the bells for a garland that revives a stale genre" -- Boyd Tonkin Independent "The collected poems and prose extracts successfully fulfill editor Adam O'Riordan's aim to capture 'some of the strangeness of the wedding day' and other aspects of our love lives." -- Chrissie Manby Time Out
