In Meat Songs, the voices of humans and animals – living and dead – clamour for the reader's attention. Pets are curious about being owned; headlice are curious about their strange habitat; a severed pig’s head is curious about an Oxford undergraduate’s decisions; and packaged meat products are ignoring the future. Through poetry, flash fiction and hybrid forms, this collection asks what animals might say to us, and suggests that despite everything they would not speak, but sing.
Meat Songs is both viscerally disturbing and completely adorable. With 9 black linocut illustrations by Mark Andrew Webber.
