Leanne O'Sullivan is still only 21, but has already won most of Ireland's main poetry competitions and had poems published in many of the magazines. Waiting for My Clothes traces a deeply personal journey, from the traumas of eating disorders and low self-esteem to the saving powers of love and positive awareness. Leanne O'Sullivan has been writing poetry since she was 12, and began these poems not thinking they would ever form part of a book, but 'writing down the reasons I should live for' and then 'becoming addicted to looking at things to find the beauty in them.'
