Not Normal Anymore

His elegant style holds the book together perfectly. An exquisite work of art, honest and groundbreaking.”

NIKITA GILL, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

A debut poetry book

Innocence never goes quietly.


Sean Lionadh’s poem, Time for Love, was published online as a short film in 2018. Inspired by a homophobic encounter, the poem has since reached sixteen million people, pissed off an Archbishop, and inspired a growing movement called the Time for Love Project in America – one line even made its way onto a strangers ankle in tattoo form.

The poem sits as part of this debut collection, alongside the TedX talk it inspired, and other poems that explore how innocence is abused, lost, grieved, and remembered in a world at war with what makes us who we really are.
