PRE-ORDER: Fewmin will be sent out on the launch date of 21st July
“A rallying cry and manifesto for survival”
- Louise Wallwein MBE, performance poet and playwright
One of Manchester’s most passionate poets and a massive name on the poetry scene, Loll Perkin is here and she has something to say. Combining politics and pride with a hefty dose of the forthright attitude she is known for, this is not your nana’s poetry — this is an exclusive tour through a complicated, candid and clever mind that has fought its demons and come out the other side. Using words as her weapon and raw vulnerability as her shield, this collection explores family ties, the effects of trauma and the trials and tribulations of living as a woman in the 2020s, all with a twist of the lyrical genius she is loved for. Expression is magic — and Loll Perkin has it in droves.
“An uncompromising writer who pokes fun, pushes buttons and provokes thought with her poems. Fewmin lives up to my high hopes of what she'd achieve. Buy it.”
- David Scott, BBC Upload
“A raw collection of personal, powerful and phenomenal poetry... magic, to say the least. From strength to strength, Loll has poured her heart out: she is a force to be reckoned with, and this book is proof of that.”
- Hallie Fletcher, author of Love, Sex & Death; Moth and Love’s Language.
