    Praise for Rory Waterman
    'Rory Waterman writes poems of the kind there’ll always be a need for – poems that require skill to make but don’t insist on it, that  combine keen-eyed observation and immediately graspable shades of feeling in a memorable way. Waterman’s is a very appealing voice, laconic, unillusioned and vulnerable. His world is a recognisable and convincing one, his rueful, sometimes harsh sincerity is palpable, and he deserves to be read by anyone to whom these things still matter.'
    Alan Jenkins
