Rattling the Handle

Rattling the Handle

by Patricia Pogson

Patricia Pogson's first full-length collection and an uncompromising one at that.

Maybe for once a blurb is right: it talks about Pogson's poems confronting the world in all its baffling inconsequentiality, absurdity and cruelty and I can't really do better than that except to say that the poems are always full of humanity, and nowhere is Pogson sniggering at any of the predicaments we find ourselves in.
