Product Description

Details

From NHS overdose clinics to overrun gardens, talking Cambodian treehouses to the teenage perversion of a young Scot on a French Exchange, Pedersen's poetry is a rich and fantastical feast of flavours, landscape and language. On the menu is everything from iced oysters and chateaubriand to pickled onions and Buckfast-soaked bread sticks. Like the man himself, these poems will tingle toes and raise eyebrows in equal measures. Michael Pederson is slowly building a reputation as a name to look out for, and has received plaudits from Stephen Fry and Irvine Welsh; as a spoken work poet, his readings are as memorable as they are witty, laced with an electric energy, as he recites from memory his highly engaging, accessible poetry. Michael Pederson, along with Kevin Williamson, hosts Neu! Reekie!, avant-garde nights of poetry, music and animated short films.

Press Reviews

'Michael's poems are so physical you can almost touch the images in them. Fabulously sensual and alive. I adore poetry like this' - Stephen Fry 'If you like poetry that is cool, smart, hilarious and quirky and can just suddenly rip your heart out, Michael Pedersen is your man' - Irvine Welsh 'Michael throws open the gates to the kingdom and all the words are singing. He knows deeply that life is nothing without play. And everything is play to him - pain and love and fun and thought and memory. Michael makes them all majestic and beautifully honest. How exciting to come across a writer with such vigour' - Ewen Bremner, actor '[R]eminded us how vibrant a thing poetry can (and probably should) be' - The Skinny
