People Who Like Meatballs, Paperback Book

People Who Like Meatballs Paperback


"People Who Like Meatballs" brings together two contrasting poem sequences about rejection by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson).

The title-sequence, "People Who Like Meatballs", is about a man's humiliation by a woman.

Into my mother's snow-encrusted lap is about a dysfunctional mother-child relationship.

Like all of Selima Hill's books, both sequences in "People Who Like Meatballs" chart 'extreme experience with a dazzling excess' (Deryn Rees-Jones), with startling humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish.
