                       When the stranger called me a faggot

"These are poems with an easy intimacy; Campion speaks to the reader about childhood, discovery of sexuality, place and young adulthood with striking humour, wit and honesty"


Toby Campion's debut short collection of poems talks us along a deeply personal yet undeniably relatable journey, through a turbulent adolescence into adulthood. 

Refreshingly frank, perceptive and funny, these poems are psalms of identity, broken tradition and desperation sung from the back lanes of a Midlands city.
