“Tim Wells is exactly the poet for our times. Sharp, witty and ultimately unforgiving in all the right places.” Phil Jupitus
“A poet of wit and brilliance.” The Guardian
“A London poetry landmark.” The Times
A piano is thrown from the top of an East London tower block. A Goth is sick on the bus. Crises, curses and kisses punctuate this new book of poetry by Tim Wells.
Written from the edges of the city, Wells’ tightly honed poems satirise the slide towards a world of frustration, gentrification and heavy manners.
Sometimes hilarious, often angry and always decisive, Everything Crash is a fierce examination of love, loss and the politics of modern living. This is poetry that challenges austerity and pretension with a cutting wit.
