"A confident hybrid of voices and styles...tender and brilliant."-Irish Times Journeying between his native Ulster and his adopted London, Nick Laird balances ideas of home and flight, the need for belonging and the need to remain outside.

Go Giants by Nick Laird Go Giants, Paperback (November 2015)

Nick Laird's poetry travels yet further afield, connecting the shores of his native Northern Ireland with those of the American east coast where he spends increasing time. This title features a trans-Atlantic fusion, an inventive melding of Ulster lyricism with proto-Beat rhythms and phrase.

On Purpose by Nick Laird On Purpose, Paperback (December 2012)

"Laird's ear for 'smallish lexical mercies' yields superb lines."-Stephen Burt, New York Times Book Review

Shropshire Lad and Other Poems by Nick Laird Shropshire Lad and Other Poems, Paperback (July 2010)

'What are those blue remembered hills, What spires, what farms are those?'
