Book Review. Pandemonium by Andrew McMillan.

The first poems in Pandemonium write about depression and suicide. In the second, we walk along the pavement past metrolinks, workmen changing into their hi-vis on the kerb ‘on the floor the hatched egg of an upturned hardhat,’ crossroads and blocks of flats. Then in the third, family, and the stillbirth of their nephew.

I liked the spacing of the poetry in Pandemonium, and the language that it uses too, both physical and tender. Like the poems on pages 25 and 35.
