Adam Horovitz

Love & Other Fairy Tales

‘Love and Other Fairy Tales’ explores love in all its forms: familial, sexual, romantic, narcissistic, anarchic, religious, faithful and unfaithful. These poems evoke the deep seams of love that run through the strata of living; how love crosses borders and seeps into humanity’s approach to the way we live with the natural and the man-made worlds, seen through the lenses of personal histories, myth, joy, gods, war, loss and longing.

From previous collections...
“…Horovitz has a natural syntactical elegance, so he’s easy on the ear; these are poems that read aloud as though they were born to do just that.”
R.V. Bailey
“Tactful and tactile, he has his own true voice, speaking his occasionally disturbing material with a light yet firm touch.”
Anthony Rudolf
“Horovitz writes with great delicacy about relationships and the natural world, sometimes baldly countered with an almost gothic sense of unresolved psychic violence.”
Martyn Crucefix
“…a fine poet, capable of producing delightful verbal music…”
Billy Mills
