What others have said about Mark Waldron

‘This is urgent, thought-provoking poetry – one of the most important debuts for a long time.’ — Clare Pollard, Magma

‘Mark Waldron is the most striking and unusual new voice to have emerged in British poetry for some time.’ –John Stammers

The Itchy Sea is the abstract film caught on TV at 3am or the obscure album that rewards repeated listens or the beautiful, nightmarish art installation you can’t shake from your mind. It is, in short, my poetry highlight of the year.’ —Matthew Haigh
