"Daytime Sleeper is a refreshing and invigorating testament to a true poet at work in the world"
Eugene O'Connell, Cork Literary Review

Gerard Smyth was born in Dublin in 1951. He has been publishing poetry in literary journals in Ireland, Britain and North America since the late 1960s. He is the author of six poetry collections: World Without End (1977), Loss and Gain (1981), Painting the Pink Roses Black (1986), Daytime Sleeper (2002), which also appeared in a Romanian translation in 2003, A New Tenancy (2004) and The Mirror Tent (2007). Dedalus will publish his Selected Poems in 2010.

"Gerard Smyth has a painstaking eye for the telling detail... in his hands the impact of simplicity is extraordinary"
Philip Casey

"He may do for Dublin in verse what Joyce did for it in prose"
Michael Hartnett
