Mondeo Man Paperback
by Luke Wright
Explosive political satire and acerbic wit leap from stage to page in Mondeo Man - the hotly anticipated debut collection from Luke Wright.
Yummy mummies and debauched Tory grandees mingle with drunk Essex commuters and leering tabloid paps; a small town chip-shop becomes the site of a heart-wrenching story of failed marriage; and a televised manhunt enthrals an entire nation. Wide-ranging, approachable and formally adept, Mondeo Man both celebrates and laments a country of disappearing pubs, celebrity anti-heroes and motorway service stations, perfectly capturing the English idiom at the turn of the twenty-first century.
Whether in sonnet, ballad, ottava rima or univocalism, Wright's fast-paced rhythms and inventive rhyme always hit the spot and never pull their punches.
This is poetry at its most contemporary, satirical, fun, and archetypally English.
