Shortlisted for the Costa 2019 Poetry Award.

Surreal, joyful, political and queer, Reckless Paper Birds is a collection to treasure by Polari Prize-winning poet John McCullough.

These exuberant poems welcome you into a psychedelic, parallel world of vomit and blossom where Kate Bush mingles with a weeping Lady Gaga, a fractal coast full of see-through things: water, mirrors, glass pebbles. With a magpie s eye for hidden charms, McCullough ranges across birdlife, Grindr and My Little Pony while also addressing social issues from homelessness to homophobia.
