A collection of 93 poems infused with a vapourific view of the author’s own alcohol-induced take on life, the world and the culture he inhabits. Karl Consiglio writes as he thinks and makes no concession to language snobbery or class distinctions. It’s as raw as flesh, so if it hurts at least you know you’re still alive. Challenging, refreshing and darkly cynical, they are also an incisive portrait of what it was like for anyone growing up around Paceville in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
