Geneviève’s last collection was split into two sections, ‘Lost’ and ‘Found’, outlining that everybody fits into one of those categories. This collection, written in the 2016-2020 mega-mystery-box of xenophobia and destruction, comes all in one chunk, as now is the time when almost everybody is just terrified.
Vitriol Works is a sublimely subversive collection of hard-hitting honesty exploring social and sexual politics, identity and alienation, whilst searching for meaning within an un-governed, post-Brexit, pandemic-enduring nation.
“As complex as it is accessible, and as passionate as it is nihilistic, this is a work of profound intelligence and insight.” - Clare Shaw, poet & playwright
“Gritty, lyrical and packed with dark humour.” - Sophie Sparham, poet & author
“She has the ability to tell a hard truth with a finesse and style that you can’t look away from.” - Dave Viney, spoken word artist
“Powerful and illuminating. Poetry to make your fists itch.” - Joelle Taylor, poet
“Consistently struck through with humanity and humour.” - Kevin P. Gilday, spoken word artist
“A rallying cry, a withering put-down and the best song you ever heard all at once. Northern Gothic at its finest.” - AJ McKenna, spoken word artist
