Michael Glover (author) Wikipedia
Michael Glover (born Sheffield, Yorkshire) is an author, London-based poet, art critic, fiction writer and magazine editor.
Michael Glover was educated at Firth Park Grammar School and read English at Queens’ College, Cambridge.
Glover has contributed regularly to The Independent, The Times, the Financial Times, the New Statesman and The Economist. He is also a London correspondent for ArtNews, New York City, and editor of on-line international poetry forum The Bow-Wow Shop. His seventh collection of poetry, Only So Much, was launched in September 2011 by the Sheffield-based Savage Poets Collective.
He wrote the Headlong Into Pennilessness memoir about growing up in a working-class suburb of Sheffield in the 1950s. Sebastian Barker, former chairman of the Poetry Society and Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, called it "charming and fascinating". Bill Hamilton, literary agent of author Hilary Mantel, describes it as a "vivid and true" picture of the kinds of life endured by tens of thousands of working-class families struggling to make ends meet in Northern Britain in the post-war austerity years.Measured Lives (Dagger Press, 1994)
