In his latest collection, Liam Ferney focuses on the deep contradictions at the heart of modern life. This is fast-paced poetry that is explosive, critical, and engaged.
Ferney uses the argot of politics and the internet to tackle religion, war, love, and late capitalism.Content charts and parodies a hypertextual world, engrossed in media while passionately critical of their effects.
'Content lampoons and laments the narcissism that accompanies the supposed information age … Ferney’s poems gun their way through a globalised economy with acronyms, diminutives, and inventive linguistic flares.’ — Gig Ryan
