Honed over a decade of live shows, this collection from serial slam champion Ash Dickinson marks him out as one of the outstanding poets of his generation. Weird, wonderful and unpretentious, Ash is not afraid of using humour to deliver his point of view. His off-kilter imagination skips with dexterity from the throwaway to the profound and poignant.

Rich with vivid surrealism, this is poetry that holds up a mirror to our world and makes us look long and hard, and not be afraid to laugh. This is poetry polished in the spotlight of the stage, poetry that tears up the rule that says performance poetry does not transfer to the page.

In the tradition of Adrian Mitchell and The Liverpool poets, Adrian Henri, Brian Patten and Roger McGough, this is poetry that is consistently accessible and entertaining. Although written primarily for the live experience of performance, this is an accomplished collection that demands a place on your bookshelf.

“A Performance Poet for the Lost Generation. If you haven’t seen him, you haven’t seen performance poetry” Federation Of Writers (Scotland)

“A very cool combination of rap, rhyme, repetition and wry wit… not only an incredibly gifted poet, but also a great comedian with a sharp eye for social commentary” Winnipeg Free Press

“Accessible and engaging… frequently self-effacing… a personable and easygoing performer… he tackles the big subjects like love, identity, and nature, and handles it all with skill and finesse” CBC Radio, Canada

“Impressive wordplay” The Times
