This book includes Scott's essay on the death of a US soldier in Iraq, which is one of his most powerful cries of protest against war and its victims.
Scott now writing at the height of his powers is among the most passionate and engaged poets writing in New Zealand today. Just as Scott shocks, dazzles and mesmerizes his audiences through his electrifying performances, this new book will compel readers with its powerful and honest insight into the human condition.
