The long-awaited first collection of poems from an influential young poet.

Holly Pester's poems make living into a radical act. Complicating the political and personal, Pester celebrates worker's rights, feminisms, reproductive rights and marginalised bodies, while critiquing the frameworks that surround them. 

With dark humour and a unique demotic, she probes the expectations placed on bodies and the temporalities they lie in. Timing becomes a narrative frame, asking what gestures and choices are demanded of us. These poems speak to a contemporary ennui without cynicism, and with the intellectual and emotional rigour our moment commands.
