Steve Rudd was born in Hull, East Yorkshire, in 1955, completely naked, unable to walk, talk, or fend for himself. His chief poetic claim to fame is that he once served Philip Larkin in a bookshop.... More > Unfortunately for both parties at the time, he mistook the great man for Eric Morecambe. He lives in West Yorkshire with a wife, a cat, and a variable number of dogs, but not necessarily in that order. His hobbies include annoying people, lying under the table with an empty can of Special Brew (which is, in itself, a form of prayer) thinking about Abraham Lincoln’s hat, and having staring contests with the linoleum. In common with many other misguided adolescents, he began writing poetry while still at school. Fortunately for mankind, all of this early work has been lost. Albion is his third poetry collection, and, like the other two, will probably appeal most strongly to people who have a table with one leg 0.33cm shorter than the other three.< Less
