In his first solo collection, a poet called Dave gives his unique insight into a background that rarely pushes poets to the foreground. Exploring the legend of angry dads, the fragility of 'lad's lads' and the condition that threatened his future as a performer, these are poems that turn life on its head to see what falls out of its pockets.

Viney's observations on class and culture are deft, powerful and most importantly bull's-eye accurate." - Byron Vincent, poet & playwright "One of the authentic voices of Manchester, a man who can be funny, sincere and compassionate in one fell swoop." - Jo Bell, former Director National Poetry Day David Viney is a multiple poetry slam winner, playwright, workshop facilitator and youth worker from Stretford, Gtr Manchester.
