A first collection from a reviewer, editor, and scholar of poetry, Tonight the Summer’s Over explores the themes of belonging and estrangement with precise resonance. Born in Belfast but brought up in rural Lincolnshire, England, Rory Waterman turns an unblinking eye on his own childhood, caught between two countries, two cultures, and two parents. The poems rise above the level of mere autobiography, however, rooted as they are in a broader concern for the inconsistencies of the human experience.

Rory Waterman is a lecturer in English and creative writing at Nottingham Trent University in England. He is a poet whose work has appeared in the PN Review and the Times Literary Supplement, among other publications, and the coeditor of the arts magazine New Walk.Review:
'Rory Waterman writes poems of the kind there'll always be a need for - poems that require skill to make but don't insist on it, that combine keen-eyed observation and immediately graspable shades of feeling in a memorable way. Waterman's is a very appealing voice, laconic, unillusioned and vulnerable. His world is a recognisable and convincing one, his rueful, sometimes harsh sincerity is palpable, and he deserves to be read by anyone to whom these things still matter.' --Alan Jenkins
