Funny, spiky, irreverent and FUN!,
This review is from: Reaching for my Gnu: Poetry by Anna Chen (Kindle Edition)
Anna Chen is one of the rising stars of the vibrant British Poetry and Performance Scene, and this, her first collection, is a fun-filled rollercoaster ride through the inside of her head.
For Chen, the personal is political, and the poems tour the gamut of her life in Britain: there are meditations on gender, psychology, Literature, food, class and autobiographical details all mixed and matched in energetic, spiky, punchy language.
Consider this a primer for not only what the Life Political is like in Britain, but also the linguistic equivalent of a high-speed ride through the highways of new British Poetry.
It's fast, furious and fun. And before you know it, your brain has been rewired and filled with new things.
