About the Book

This humourous, accessible collection explores a diverse range of themes: death, infidelity, politics, homesickness, racism, humanity as well as every day life. The topics, found within the lines of this book, are portrayed with such humour and warmth they will delight, shock and amuse readers in equal measure. Reading this collection has been described as, ‘feeling like I was at a book festival, stand-up comedy night and therapy session all at once. Every poem is an event.’ Kevin MacNeil, author of The Brilliant & Forever, A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde and The Stornoway Way.

Raw, beautiful and completely devoid of pretension, Ali Whitelock’s poems will speak to anyone who’s ever messed up, been confused or wished they’d done things differently.
