Unincorporated persons in the late Honda dynasty by Tony Hoagland

Astonishing and sublime collection from a master. I’d never encountered any poetry from this writer until I picked up this slim book in Aylsham library and was immediately transfixed.

Tony Hoagland writes in a way which is very accessible and informal, but the poetry he creates is astounding. If you enjoy poetry at all, I can’t recommend this enough.

Strongly contemporary, using everyday imagery, tackling everything from the big issues to how there seem to be fewer crisps in a ‘big grab bag’ than there used to be (and that in a wonderful poem!).

The best poetry I’ve read this year.
