The poems in Rory Waterman's début collection Tonight the Summer's Over explore belonging and estrangement with precise resonance. Born in Belfast and brought up in rural Lincolnshire, Waterman turns an unblurred eye on his own childhood, caught between two countries, two cultures, two parents.

Yet his poems are never mere autobiography: they are rooted in a broader concern for the inconsistencies of human experience.

Tonight the Summer's Over becomes a book of love and hope: 'Lift the purest feather from the wreck. / Ignore the seagulls laughing against the sky.'
