Glyn Edwards’ first collection has been greatly anticipated by those already familiar with his work. Vertebrae will not disappoint, full as it is of haunting, carefully-crafted poems.

Poetry Wales

"These poems will sharpen your perceptions, refresh your thinking, and open your heart. What more could you want? Welcome a new bright star in poetry."

John Freeman

"Beautifully finely-wrought poems. A collection that adds up to the striking and intense life of one intelligent being."

Martina Evans

"Tender and varied, in touch with the darkness, these are poems to proclaim and sing, to celebrate and cherish."

Jonathan Edwards

One of the most exciting voices in Welsh poetry.

Wales Arts Review

Powerful and resonant. Edwards is a poet who knows where is heading and unapologetically takes us there... into the landscape of rural Wales and his own searching.
