Comic Timing, Paperback / softback Book

Comic Timing Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Comic Timing, Holly Pester's extraordinary debut collection of poems, chronicles the experience of living and working as a radical and resistant act.

These poems shunt a reader between the political and personal via unique, fragmentary and illusory turns of phrase.

Holly tackles marginal bodies, landlords, bog butter, desire, domestic and civic spaces in an unique and illusory voice. She chronicles the prevailing mood of our times, mining radical and anarchic histories to offer a collection of political resistance with both absurdity and seriousness.

These poems interrogate and poke fun at the expectations of people in a commodified culture with a wry humour.

Combining a beautifully performed naivety with a profound intellect, this collection is a hugely original approach to a number of pressing issues.

Worker's rights, feminisms, reproductive rights and marginalised bodies and their positions are all thought through in this startling and innovative voice.
