Rollinson disputes his nickname, whether or not you agree with him you'll find the poems in this debut collection sexy and moving. Always funny, always sensitive, the poet guides you through the nooks and crannies of his (sometimes distorted) imagination with an enthusiasm that scares. This is unconventional but forward-looking poetry at it's best - hailed by Don Paterson and Matthew Sweeny - Neil Rollinson will go far. I can't wait for his next collection.
