    'Tim Liardet makes the human macabre dazzle in the dark.'
    Gwyneth Lewis 
    'It is rare for a book of poems to bring an original and deeply poetic talent to a human story as Tim Liardet does in this collection. There is horror in the story he tells, but Liardet takes the horror to its storm-lit root. The Storm House is a book of poems like no other. It is true poetry, sensationally assembled.'
    Peter Porter
    Awards won by Tim Liardet Short-listed, 2015 TS Eliot Prize (The World Before Snow)
