After close to a decade focused on teaching, fatherhood and running London’s longest running poetry open mic, Poetry Unplugged, Niall O’Sullivan returns with Werewolf of London, a selection of new poems written during his print hiatus, alongside older verse. His newer work retains the humour evident since his 2004 début, but his later work finds a register that ekes the majesty out of his reflections. Nowhere is this more evident than in the soaring nine-part sequence Now is Not the Time for Politics – a gem of fluid, funny, fierce verse.
