ForewordHappy Christmas! (don’t get tasered)
Go home australia your drunk!!
Now that’s cricket
Too close for comfort
Broken train lines
How to reason with snakes
An ode to the stupidity of sheep
The little things
HOWL, for Allen Ginsberg
‘Smith’s voice is anything but timid, and it’s when she modulates ‘difficult’ with a more restrained-but-fluent perspicacity that the collection really starts to build its force.’
