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)
