...and then she ate him by Tom Denbigh
“The scope and depth in this collection is astounding... magical in all senses of the word.” - Keith Jarrett
In his debut collection, Tom Denbigh's wickedly beautiful writing holds up a distorted mirror to the world. Deftly weaving the queer experience alongside tales of friends and strangers, Tom toys with myth, devilish humour and absurdity to portray the bizarre and brilliant in the mundane. Imagination is brought to life in this unique collection that is thought-provoking, insightful and startlingly joyous.
“In this luminous collection, surrealism and spirituality go hand in hand with stark poems of the body and sexuality. Denbigh has a unique ability to weave narrative and humour through expansive poems which reframe and reconsider the everyday.” - Andrew Mcmillan
“A Tom Denbigh poem is a perfectly twisted fairytale. His precise, playful confidence, intrepid warps in language and acerbic imagination will make you realise your head and heart have been tugged into an adventure far from home.” - Jasmine Gardosi
