 Grace Wells debut collection, When God Has Been Called Away to Greater Things (Dedalus Press, 2010) won the Rupert and Eithne Strong Best First Collection Award, was shortlisted for the London Fringe Festival New Poetry Award, and has been translated into Italian.

“A poet of depth and elegance,
of sparkling intuition and
studied formality, Grace Wells
is one of the twelve apostles at
the feast of poetry. Her work
will endure for its beautiful seriousness,
its style, its sense of purpose.”
– Thomas McCarthy
