Calling Myself on the Phone

£6.95

‘Steven Waling’s marvellous poems inhabit the awkward corners of everyday lives. He has a keen awareness of life’s absurdities, uncovered in poems that are by turn lyrical and surreal, poignant and full of edgy wit.’ — Amanda Dalton

‘I’ve greatly admired Steven Waling’s poetry since ‘The Smiths’ were in the charts. It might seem strange in these strange days to claim a poet’s work to be enlightening as well as enjoyable but I’d say this is particularly of Steven Waling’s. And the manner in which it enlightens is precision: of perception, of language, of social morality. This is his first major collection; it is a substantial and valuable book.’ — David Morley
