A collection of terrifyingly wicked fairytales and poems from The Times’ Talent to Watch, Laura Dockrill

Darkly humorous and bone-shatteringly terrifying – this collection of tales will reel you in and won't let you escape its spell...

About the Author:

Laura Dockrill is a poet and illustrator from South London. A graduate of The Brit School of Performing Arts, twenty-three year old Laura was named one of the top ten literary stars of 2008 according to The Times and was voted Elle's top face to watch out for in 2009. Her sassy and unique way with words has captivated audiences at gigs and festivals everywhere, from Glastonbury to the London Word Festival. She has been at the forefront of the performance poetry movement, having appeared on programmes such as 'Woman's Hour' and 'Newsnight Review'. She continues her whistle-stop tour of the UK festival scene this summer, kicking off by headlining the poetry tent at Latitude and continuing with Camp Bestival, The Big Chill and Underbelly on the Southbank, sponsored by E4.

Review:

Praise for ECHOES:

'A must-see on the festival circuit, the 24-year-old poet and storyteller takes her inspiration from Tim Burton and Roald Dahl in this gloriously off-kilter collection of modern fairy tales and poems. Beyond cool.' MARIE CLAIRE

'Obsessive and darkly erotic, and shot through with a macabre and bloodthirsty streak, this is surreal fantasy that really clicks into place when it explores the links between body image and body horror. Perfect alternative bedtime reading for readers who've grown out of Roald Dahl.' THE HERALD

Praise for Laura’s previous books:

‘Everyone’s falling for poet Laura Dockrill’s modern musings’ Vogue

‘Laura Dockrill is a singular talent in the rave new world world of poetry. Comparison to others would do her no justice. Bright, funny, intelligent and passionate, this is a book you should already be taking away from the shop...’ Phill Jupitus

‘Mistakes in the Background is an absolute treat ...it’s about pure, old-school imagination and art. The poetry shines with playful juvenilia, discussing everything from childhood memories and sibling feuds to croissants, robots and opinionated inanimate objects. It often runs like stream-of-consciousness prose, and is both articulate and wildly creative. The passion that has created this work is evident in every sentence and illustration.’ Wears the Trousers Magazine
