defining their own ground and changing ours.” - George Szirtes





               


“Tall Lighthouse has a habit of spotting talent, having published Helen Mort's first two pamphlets.

Here, Harry Man looks a poet unique and bold enough to follow in those footsteps.

Lift is a debut pamphlet that takes off into orbit, mixing science fiction and science fact, past and future,

with language and imagery that sparkles with life. Poems arise from gaming platforms and social media,

from time machines and rocket ships, and are sewn with a passion and humour 
by a poetic voice which displays
an endearing understanding of what it is to be human.”
