• A rippling, impeccable lyricism that’s delicious to read aloud, and a down-to-earth, deadpan violence that recalls Simon Armitage… If you haven’t discovered Morgan, this weird, unsettling trip is the perfect introduction.

    Tristram Fane Saunders, Daily Telegraph *Poetry Book of the Month*
  • [J. O. Morgan] has quietly established himself as a gifted writer of the long poem... The Martian’s Regress is an imaginative leap… In portraying the variously hopeful, hopeless, comic and bleak ways of apparent aliens, Morgan brings us closer to ourselves.

  • Startling… What a joy to read and re-read and re-re-read… As intelligent as [it is] affecting.

    Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday
  • The Martian’s Regress is a powerful long poem… An interesting and always accessible variation on a dystopian theme… The story remains taut and reverberates…[and] draws elements of humour even from dark places.
