Industry Reviews
'Mesmerising, magical, deeply moving. I loved and adored this book! If you are looking for a read that will warm your heart, inspire your creative mind and renew your faith in the resilience of the human race, look no further' - ELIF SHAFAK

'A poem to Padraig is like a child to Mary Poppins. It sits, alert, in wonder that he should know it so well. I would go out at night to hear Padraig talk of the poems. The next best thing, maybe even better, is Poetry Unbound . . . There should be a copy of Poetry Unbound in every bar, every cafe, every train station, every bus station, every airport, every workplace, every school, every university, everywhere!' - LEMN SISSAY

'A wonderful anthology of poetry filled with fascinating and thought-provoking commentary from one of the best voices in contemporary poetry today' - WILLIAM SIEGHART

'Padraig O Tuama is a bearer of light. He has been called to bring his illuminating insights into what some might consider encroaching darkness, and we are all the fortunate beneficiaries of his response. This collection of poems by fifty writers, with accompanying essays by Padraig, is a testament to the rare fineness of feeling and understanding that mark his brilliant work for the On Being Project' - LORNA GOODISON

'The Poetry Unbound podcast, and Padraig's way of finding language to describe the details and intricacies and the shades of grey of the human experience, have made me a better person, a better songwriter and a better artist. Padraig's perspectives have added so much beauty, wonder and comfort to my life, and I would urge everyone to dive into this deeply rewarding book' - CAMILA CABELLO
