Review:

'This is such a striking first book that at any age it would be remarkable - from a teenage writer it leaves you excited that there may be so much more to come' - TIME OUT 'Pollard writes entirely and authentically out of the excited anxieties of female adolescence: its quixotic hopes, its merciless bitchiness and its maiming disappointments...The vioelnt colours, the abrupt swerves of thought and the wilfully obscuring bruising of Pollard's poems distinguish them from the usual twenty-something constructions' - THE TIMES

Book Description BLOODAXE BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Clare Pollard wrote most of these poems while still at school in Bolton. Too young, perhaps, to expect anyone to take her seriously, but young enough to question that assumption and much else besides. Her poems are fresh and energetic, barbed with a modern girl s natural cynicism, but tempered with open-eyed hope as well as wry acceptance. In The Heavy-Petting Zoo, the male of the species is shown in all his preening glory, his growling and posturing exposed but also given marks out of ten. The book gives us the world according to Clare Pollard writing as a teenager, an insider s in-your-face portrayal of the tarnished lives of today s bright young things. This is work you can t ignore  raw, reckless and more bloody-minded than an older, so-called wiser poet would dare to be. Clare Pollard tells us what it s like to be young, slim and pissed at the door of the 21st century  Selima Hill.  This is such a striking first book that at any age it would be remarkable  from a teenage writer it leaves you excited that there may be so much more to come  Time Out.  Pollard s poems are like shards of glass, brittle, dangerous things that work their way under your skin. Her voice captures the pain, anxiety and emptiness of a generation weaned on Coke and Diamond White, reared on fast food and TV, and now entering adulthood armed with utterly ephemeral cultural reference points and a strong suit in self-destruction Her poems compulsively re-enact the reaching out to life and the withdrawing in pain Pollard is a poet of the 21st century, a witness of the present and a shaper of its voice  John Sears, PopMatters Both a seasoned observer and a master technician like early Sylvia Plath re-interpreted for the Trainspotting generation  Daily Mail.
