Publisher Description:
Poetry. Women's Studies. The poems in Mik Grantham's debut collection, HARDCORE, are deceptively simple, darkly funny, and as unforgettable as a nagging toothache. Grantham confronts grief in myriad forms; the loss of innocence coincides with the loss of a tooth; a relationship decays and is uprooted alongside ruminative dog walks and soul-crushing waitressing shifts. It is Mik Grantham's refusal to wallow in the dour, her embrace of the grotesque and the unfortunate situations served up to her by life, that allow the underlying love and hope in these poems to shine through.
