Bobby Parker's new collection, Working Class Voodoo (from exciting new indie publisher Offord Road Books) is his 2nd collection following on from his critically acclaimed debut Blue Movie (Nine Arches, 2014). The poems continue in the strange raw, authobiographical for which he is known.
His poems push at questions of contemporary masculinity, of the domestic and of the bonds of family, our unreliability, our desires, our addictions and our weaknesses are both indulged and confronted. Working Class Voodoo is a confessional and a challenge, and a swampy, seductive ride into the night.
Join us for a rare outing in Birmingham for a poet that the Midlands can be proud of. Further poets to read alongside Bobby will be announced in due course.
Tickets cost £3 and are available in store or online.
