Henry Normal’s first poetry collection in over twenty years, combining both new and selected poems from his previous performance work.

This collection encompasses the subjects of love, death, loneliness, loss, human frailty and other classic conversation stoppers.

“Succinct, heartrending and peppered with gentle punchlines” – The Guardian

“The Alan Bennett of poetry” – The Scotsman

This was first published by Five Leaves before (with our blessing!) he moved to Flapjack, his now regular publisher.
