He was a recipient of a 2009 Eric Gregory Award, and his debut collection 81 Austerities (Faber & Faber 2012) won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. His second collection Kim Kardashian’s Marriage was published by Faber in 2015. His standalone pamphlets include Standard Twin Fantasy (Egg Box 2014) and True Colours (After Hours 2016).
