Reviews

"When Andrew McMillan published his first poetry collection, physical, in 2015, the response was extraordinary. A tidal wave of praise pouring in from all sides marked it out as the sort of once-in-a-generation debut that causes everyone to sit up and take notice... physical was a collection unlike any other." -- Sarah Crown * Guardian *
"Andrew McMillan's award-winning debut collection, physical, a raw and tender exploration of gay love and desire, heralded him as a new force in contemporary poetry." * attitude *
"Andrew McMillan's wide-awake debut anatomises male desire and its often thwarted expressions; these fresh and engaging poems enter the temple of longing in honest search for what may be found there, which turns out to be joy, desolation, secret languages, the possibilities of transformation and of disappointment borne in every touch." -- Mark Doty
"physical really announces Andrew McMillan and it feels like a long while since a first book has managed this degree of tenderness and candour, sensuality and vulnerability. "There is beauty in the ordinary", and every poem in this urgent, unflinching, exceptional debut affirms this." -- Paul Farley
"Thom Gunn, the lodestar of this collection, said that poetry comes from obsession and passion. Few first books are as passionate, as carnal, as this one. McMillan's work is a glorious, vivid exploration of the body as the loved and broken ground on which we meet and are transformed." -- Michael Symmons Roberts
