Small World "A work of genius" -- Louise Welsh.
Widespread acclaim for Small World's poems:
"I am greatly changed" -- Poem of the Week, The Guardian
"Drugs, or" -- Poem of the Week, The Scotsman
"Cocktail hour" -- a Best Scottish Poem 2012, Scottish Poetry Library
"It is the sense of the spaciousness of Price’s language
that I particularly came to admire in this book. In his
there is a roominess: nothing is easily locked down into simple structures; the
complexity of thought and sensation is given
room to be fully expressed,
not simplified, yet remain accessible.
I might call what Richard Price has achieved the new personal."
-- Caroline Clark.
Small World is available in paperback and as an e-book, available direct from

"The Island is a story of rare qualities that
many writers aim for and few achieve." -- Toby Litt
Richard Price's poems "are clear, witty, intelligent, versatile and often
highly moving; superb examples of a hard-earned surface simplicity conveying oceanic depths of
feeling and thought."
-- Robert Potts, The Guardian
