As I sit quietly, I begin to smell burning.
McGuire's full collection is finally out. Buy it. Read it. Dose it in petrol and set it on fire.
'As I sit quietly, I begin to smell burning' is a wild mixture of poetry and short stories. In the spirit of verging on discovering catastrophe. 'As I sit quietly, I begin to smell burning' display's McGuire's tendency toward the confessional, the social-realistic and absurd. McGuire has a voice that is frank and direct. McGuire write about childhood, private life, as well as Scottish life, as well as confronting issues of perversion, identity, masculinity and addiction.
8 pounds - packed with fire.
