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.
