The debut collection by poet/physicist Iggy McGovern which won the inaugural Glen Dimplex New Writers Award for Poetry in 2006.
“[S]o long as the poems are as snazzy, and sharply focused, and ingeniously rhymed as Iggy McGovern’s one-pagers in The King of Suburbia, we can’t complain… We could do with a whole lot more of this kind of well-turned verse and sharply-observed ironies.” — James J McAuley, The Irish Times
