From NHS overdose clinics to overrun gardens, talking Cambodian treehouses to the teenage perversion of a young Scot on a French Exchange, Pedersen's poetry is a rich and fantastical feast of flavours, landscape and language. On the menu is everything from iced oysters and chateaubriand to pickled onions and Buckfast-soaked bread sticks. Like the man himself, these poems will tingle toes and raise eyebrows in equal measures.

Michael Pedersen has published two successful chapbooks and an acclaimed debut collection Play with Me (Polygon). He was named a 'Canongate Future 40'; was awarded the John Mather Trust Rising Star of Literature Award 2014 (appointed by the Scottish Poetry Library); received a Cove Park residency and the 2015 Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship. Most recently he has been working on a feature film commission with Director Robert McKillop and keeping the Neu! Reekie! dream alive.
