"One of my favorite things about Adam’s poetry is his combination of traditional styles, modern styles, and his own style of poetry – the simplex metre. That’s even truer in this book!"
"Part of his style – specifically, the aesthetic of the poems – has a calming, sort of cozy feel. It’s almost as if I’m reading this in a comfortable chair by lamplight in a small room as soft rain taps on the window and I can hear the bustle of a London street outside"
"Previously, The Random Ramblings of a Restless Mind and Poet in the Long Dark Coat fought for the spotlight as my favorite of Adam’s books. However, I think The Early Hours has beaten them. I think Adam did a wonderful job tying old and new poems together in a cohesive, relatable, and outright enjoyable book!"
- Brooke Goodwin
"It is a brave, honest, and challenging assortment of work and explores an array of different poetic tools and techniques to renew form in poetry. The message Adam conveys contains humor, joy, and the genuine darkness experienced by the unease of a poet in transition.
Every piece of work in this collection remains captivating and current. The Early Hours recognizes its readers- fellow poets, artists, and writers and entices us to claim our craft with conviction, heart, and courage."
"The Early Hours deserves 4 and a half stars out of five."
