The Dandelion Clock, A Book of 50 Poems by Oliver James Lomax

‘Being with you and not being with you is the only way I have to measure time.’ Jorge Luis Borges

In time travelling poems of love, loss and grief, Oliver James Lomax distills moments of his childhood into beautiful, almost cinematic vignettes, coming of age through the looking glass, he explores the relationship he has with the memory of his grandparents, his precise eye capturing moments in time, anchored in a northern landscape where the most humble of happenings seem to take on a universal consciousness. Join him as he orders a Humphrey Bogart Breakfast, is mugged for a Hank Williams record and his Nan develops an almost mythical status in this astonishing first full collection from the Bolton poet. - Book description by Jeff Towns of Salubrious House Press and Dylan's Bookstore

'A fantastically punchy debut by Bolton poet Oliver James Lomax. Expressed with a deft musicality of language,and with lines that wouldn't look out of place nestled inside the sleeve of a Leonard Cohen or Nick Cave album, an exciting introduction to a poet who is making huge strides in the literary scene.'
- Natalie Ann Holborrow.

'Tidy boy, tidy poems, spend your filthy lucre on this book.'
- Cerys Matthews
