InMoreNiall OSullivans first collection, youre not singing anymore (flipped eye, 2004), explores religion, youth, and the many faces of London. It was received with widespread acclaim, becoming a 20th Century bestseller on Amazon.co.uk. In Ventriloquism for Monkeys, his second, he turns his attention to science, memory, evolution and ideology. Niall OSullivan is known as a host and champion of live poetry in London. Its tempting to call his second collection a crossover - yet these dont read like performance pieces tamed for the page, for Niall is no genre hybrid, he is simply a good writer - warm, smart, thoughtful. His poetry inhabits a place where pertinence and impertinence meet. --Roddy Lumsden
