Shut Up Slow Down Let Go Breathe

Half wisecracking tour guide and half flirtatious trick, thepoems in Shut Up Slow Down Let Go Breathe examine how werespond to overwork and overstimulation. McCann's third collectionspeaks to a world that is too busy and too anxious, delivering thematerial with zero reverence and with loads of self-deprecating,disarming, observational - and sometimes catty - humour. Invitingreaders to be his "bandmates / on life's slutty bus tour," ShutUp Slow Down Let Go Breathe marks a fresh new direction inMarcus McCann's poetics."McCann's work is a must for any lover ofpoems."—Northumberland Today
