‘Sean Swallow writes gorgeous, elliptical, frank and funny poems.
As likely to be found in a woodland clearing as a hotel suite, his work makes its own space at the
intersection of contemporary writing about nature, class and queer subjectivity – a really bold and vital new voice.’
Dai George, author of The Claims Office and reviews editor at Poetry London
‘Sean Swallow writes with a wonderfully observant eye, and finds wonderful strangeness in the landscape around him.
His voice is entirely his own – making sense of world, sometimes marvelling at it, sometimes confused by it.’
