The Book

"Colin Herd's poems are masterpieces of variousness. They are talismans against Macho demons. They are snatches of theory operating under lavish spills of language. They are domestic vignettes queered. They are archives of both trauma and creativity. They are poems that flirt with anti-poetry. They are friendly utterances talking in philosophical undertones. They are ekphrasis become art itself. Colin Herd is the fiercest of makers, routinely unparalleled in his inventiveness!"
- Richard Scott, author of Soho (Faber, 2018)
