'Permeable' is a warm, funny and nuanced collection from a dynamic and seasoned wordsmith. Covering everything from the difficulties of love to mental health and Tetris, Chutzpah paints powerful pictures about the instability and insecurity of 'millennial' life. Taking a winding route via hoarding, pet crematoriums and lunar photography, 'Permeable' is a guide for trying to get by as best you can without being an arse.

Hannah Chutzpah is a performance poet, activist, and smartass. Born and raised in London, she studied at UEA and has performed everywhere from Occupy protests to the Royal Albert Hall. Her one-woman Edinburgh Fringe shows have received five star reviews and made people cry. Apparently in a good way. Hannah has been described as 'fine' by three therapists, as 'of good character' by a high court judge and as 'a potential maggot-thrower' by the Metropolitan Police. This is her third collection.
