Take a city, any city . . . Things you see every day but don't notice. Things you try not to see. Dumped cars and rubbish, high-rise flats, shut shops and broken windows, subways. Doppelgängers, bagladies, joyriders, beggers. This is the world of Philip Gross's poems. Tough, funny, haunting and unsettling, they take you under the surface, to a place you just might recognize.
'This book is absolutely brilliant. Teachers should order a class set at once, and non-teachers should buy a copy for every single teenager they know, and urge them to share it with their parents.' Guardian
