The Failed Idealist's Guide to the Tatty Truth (Paperback)Fergus McGonigal (author)
Paperback 84 Pages / Published: 04/11/2014
- Not available
Fergus McGonigal takes Ogden Nash's notion of a poem being an essay which rhymes and targets the unsentimental truth about parenthood, pseudo-intellectual pretentiousness and pomposity, and what happens when the idealism of youth has given way to the disappointment of middle-age. As you would expect of a slam veteran, Fergus's poems are comic entertainments but beneath the manic laughter there always lies a grain of familiar truth.
