Philip Gross was born in 1952 in Delabole, North Cornwall, the only child of a wartime refugee from Estonia and the village schoolmaster's daughter. He began writing stories in junior school.

Winner of the National Poetry Competition in 1982, he has since gone on to win the T.S.Eliot Poetry Prize 2009 for The Water Table, the Wales Book of the Year 2010 for I Spy Pinhole Eye and the CLPE Award for Children's Poetry 2011 for Off Road To Everywhere. His debut collection of poetry for children, Manifold Manor, won the Signal Award in 1989.

This recording of his poems gives the listener an excellent insight into both Philip Gross's worldview and his creative process.
