Thanks for Nothing, Hippies
Sarah Clancy trawls life's horrors, pleasures and its most banal irritations in search of an identity she can live with
This book may be the essential survival guide to nearly everything for the disaffected; it offers its off-kilter judgements on issues as wide ranging as Mexico's narco wars or surviving in a modern workplace, it endures scarcely tolerable bus journeys in odd places and provides a myriad of tips for ruining perfectly good relationships along the way. In these restless and darkly funny poems the writer trawls life's horrors, pleasures and its most banal irritations in search of an identity she can live with.
Irreverent and imaginative this collection could be described as a poetry whodunnit where the writer has no illusions that whatever 'it' was she did it herself.
