Abstract
 
Description
A piano is thrown from the top of an East London tower block. A Goth is sick on the bus. Crises, curses and kisses punctuate this new book of poetry by Tim Wells. Written from the edges of the city, Wells' tightly honed poems satirise the slide towards a world of frustration, gentrification and heavy manners. Sometimes hilarious, often angry and always decisive, Everything Crash is a fierce examination of love, loss and the politics of modern living. This is poetry that challenges austerity and pretension with a cutting wit. PRAISE FOR EVERYTHING CRASH "In uncertain times it's nice to have something you can rely on. Tim Wells' words turn a gimlet eye on life's good, bad and ugly moments, as well as his own frailties. Imagine Ray Winstone petting a kitten and you get the idea. In his Brisbane Road Saturday schmutter and rude boy demeanour you'd be fooled into thinking he's a man out of time, but Tim Wells is exactly the poet for our times. Sharp, witty and ultimately unforgiving in all the right places." PHILL JUPITUS - from Amzon
