Michael Glover, Only So Much

MICHAEL GLOVER, responsible for both our first pamphlet, ‘A Faint Dusting of Blue Hair’, in far-off 2006, and our first book, ‘For the Sheer Hell of Living’ (2008) has just burst into song again, this time from a publishing imprint nearer home, Savage Poets Collective, based in his native Sheffield. Details of his new book, ‘Only So Much’, can be seen at  acmretro.com/savagepoetscollective The same publisher, ACM Retro, has also just released a memoir of his Yorkshire childhood, “Headlong into Pennilessness” (acmretro.com).

His next projects for San Marco Press, due in 2013, will be a guide to some of the world’s greatest paintings, based on his well-known Friday features in The Independent, followed soon after by “After the Salad”, his new collection of poetry.
