The myth of this is that we are all in this together
Author: Nick Mulgrew
Published: November 2015
Equal parts flippant and plaintive, Nick Mulgrew’s first collection of poems, the myth of this is that we’re all in this together, is a three-part meditation on the ways in which people lose trust in themselves, each other and their communities.
Experimentally laced with monologue, anecdote and truism, these 32 self-aware, diary-esque poems languish in the small sadnesses and frayings of a terminally uncertain society in a socially-mediated age.
