Let the Pig Out
Published by Burning Eye Books
Let the Pig Out is the first collection from Chris Redmond, spoken word poet and front man of Tongue Fu, one of the UK’s leading spoken word shows. It is a fusion of performance writing and page poems, mixing story forms with internal rhymes and rhythms, comic dialogue and sparser, more condensed imagery.
Fox racing, fatherhood, rainbows and road kill are some of the topics candidly explored with a playful heart, a political head and a compulsion to explore the friction between cynicism and idealism.
Let the Pig Out is a note to self and/or a call to arms, to embrace life in all it’s mess and discord with a wild sense of curiosity and wonder.
