Adam White served his time as a carpenter before travelling to Brittany to work and learn French on the building sites. He later read French and English at NUI Galway and started to write poetry. Accurate Measurements (Doire Press, 2014) was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for best first collection.  What Else Is There? is his second collection (2017).

"I can think of no other poet writing today whose work illumines and celebrates with such assurance the world of physical work. " - Mike McCormack
