    O Riordan s debut collection was published in the UK in 2010 and won a Somerset Maugham Award in December it will be released in America for the first time My favorite poems were about Victorian Manchester, 1910s suffragettes and the Wordsworths, this last based on the author s year in residence at their Lake District cottage I also liked The Corpse Garden about the outdoor forensic lab in Knoxville, Tennessee and a couple of multi part poems that seem to enliven family history.It s the O Riordan s debut collection was published in the UK in 2010 and won a Somerset Maugham Award in December it will be released in America for the first time My favorite poems were about Victorian Manchester, 1910s suffragettes and the Wordsworths, this last based on the author s year in residence at their Lake District cottage I also liked The Corpse Garden about the outdoor forensic lab in Knoxville, Tennessee and a couple of multi part poems that seem to enliven family history.It s the vocabulary and alliteration that make these poems there are only a handful of rhyming couplets The later poems interested me less, especially a couple of subtly erotic ones that rely on clich d symbols like oysters.Overall favorite lines, from the start of Manchester Queen of the cotton cities,nightly I piece you back into existence the frayed bridal train your chimneys layand the warped applause track of Victorian rain.You re the blackened lung whose depths I plumb,the million windows and the smoke occluded sun

    A really strong debut poetry book from a few years back and I think he has another one out now that I ve yet to read The poems are very neatly crafted and are very elegant and concise and never overstay their welcome which I liked Some nice imagery evoked within these pages and the poems feel as if they have been well thought through and written with a lot of care and attentionoverall a clean, crisp and cultured first collection.
