Comments on Inner London Buddha:

"If art is required to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed then this collection succeeds beyond expectation."
Never Imitate

"Time and again, he writes words that strike you with earnest truth, a prosaic brutality..."
Bookmunch

"When you start reading [Inner London Buddha], you're hooked… What are you waiting for? Get it."
The Pensive Quill


SOME OTHER COMMENTS ON MICK GUFFAN'S POETRY:

"The poems [in The Bastard Brother] are short, unadorned and written in the type of stark, gruff English which provides its own music, and which echoes most after you put the book down."
The Skinny

"The nasty business of being human is ever in his thoughts."
— Trevor Reeves, Southern Ocean Review

"His writing continues to take me. It has the confidence and purpose of a man who is indifferent to the canon and yet the drive and need to get involved in the game. He’s great company and good to be alone with. Like drinking wine from a mug in the afternoon, wearing an old dressing gown and watching two flies fight over nothing in a sunbeam. A brilliant release."
— Reader comment on Mick Guffan's I am My Own Crew

Mick Guffan (1953-2006) was born in An Sciobairín, Cork, Ireland, the youngest of five brothers. He came to England at the age of 18, working variously as a taxi driver, airplane cleaner and finally as a carpenter. He died at St. George’s Hospital, Tooting, London on 14th June 2006, his body set about by nervous exhaustion following an unprovoked encounter in a public house.
