Pascal O’Loughlin’s poems are wry, astute, companionable, heartbroken, elegant, and tasty—and he does not leave out the fucking men with their fucking fucking. He may be showing us life inside the commodity (with its lists), inside the songs, the films, the formal gambits and institutions, exempli gratia the Institute Philip K. Dick, but somehow, also, we carry on toward the fictional horizon, accepting fragility and the inevitable harm. Tenderness will suffice.
- Robert Glück
Pascal was born in Dublin, moved to London in the 1980s, and became a Librarian at the National Poetry Library.

His published poems, stories, zines and pamphlets include Walking Naked, Chocoholochismo, RWF/RAF (Stinky Bear Press with Sarah Crewe) and YUKIKO. Now Legwarmers (Henningham Family Press) is his debut novel.
