An arresting debut collection about identity, ancestry and history, from a young poet selected as an inaugural winner of the #Merky Books New Writers’ Prize, dedicated to discovering the best writers of a new generation.

‘This is a courageous, arresting debut from a poet to watch.’ Independent’

Chosen as one of Bustle’s Best Debut Books of 2021

Written with profound depth and insight, the poems in Teeth in the Back of My Neck explore the joys, the confusions and the moments of sadness behind having one’s history scattered around the globe – and the way in which your identity is always worn on your skin, whether you like it or not. Bristling with tension and beautifully realised, Monika Radojevic’s impressive debut collection is an introduction to one of the most exciting and impressive poets of her generation.
