About the Author

Luke Kennard is the author of four volumes of poetry and two pamphlets. He lectures in creative writing at the University of Birmingham.


Kennard's imaginative range is constantly awe-inspiring, coupling as it does seeming absurdities with healthy doses of down-to-earthiness to concoct, well, I don't care to try to name what it concocts, because to name it would spoil my day. Reading "The Esplanade", which concerns a spy and an assassin, sort of, it occurred to me somewhat belatedly that the voice behind these, um, things (the narrator? Well, maybe) is consistent. It belongs to a participant in what's going on, someone who is a part of things but somehow adrift, at times very switched on and self-assured, at other times bemused and something of a spectator.

-- Martin Stannard * Litter Magazine *

The Solex Brothers struck me as probably the most interesting debut of 2005 ... original and startlingly imaginative lyrical pyrotechnics.

-- Nathan Thompson * Shearsman Magazine *

He is a talent to watch out for. He's got it. Let's hope he doesn't lose it, either to the world of performance cliche or the mainstream's emasculating embrace.

-- Tim Allen * Terrible Work *
