Applied Mathematics author Dan Simpson returns with a smashing new collection filled to the brim with trademark puns, quips, whips and wacks about life in the Big Smoke and the oddities that we discover in the every day.

By turns robust and vulnerable, the book is shot through with the sense of humour and linguistic dexterity for which the former Canterbury Laureate has built a reputation in the world of spoken word. Unafraid to play with form and structure, the collection includes a one-vowel-only black cab journey; a music review featuring all the words first coined in 1985; and a shape poem in the shape of a poem. Featuring pieces from four full length solo shows, plus material written for residencies and commissions, Totally Cultured is poetry at its most engaging and contemporary.
