Something is terribly wrong. The news lurches between horror show and parody. Aeroplanes disappear from radar screens. The Holocene obliterates itself.

Hot Take confronts opinion culture in the attention economy, love in the age of Tinder, politics in the age of Brexit and Trump. It will stay with you long after the think pieces are forgotten.

‘What use is music your body can’t hold,
that can’t take you from this world?’

Each of these poems is a portrait of someone with or reputed to have had Marfan Syndrome. Many of the poems emerge out of personal interviews, while others are portraits of public figures: Abraham Lincoln, Akhenaten, Mary Queen of Scots , Edith Sitwell, Niccolo Paganini, John Tavener, Sergei Rachmaninov, and Robert Johnson, among others.

‘It is rare and electrifying to read poetry with this much at stake. These poems are ‘written in blood ink’: everywhere charged with terror and longing. This is Joel Deane’s masterwork. Wild, bitter, rapturous, it is his ‘Howl’ and ‘Book of Revelations’. Magnificent!‘ — Lisa Gorton

‘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
