From Grez-sur-Loing and festive nights to sizzling summers stretched out in the Meadows and Portobello, Michael Pedersen's unique brand of poetry captures a debauchery and a disputation of characters, narrated with an intense honesty and a love of language that is playful, powerful and penetrative; he vividly illuminates scenes with an energy that is both witty and humorous but also deeply intelligent. Oyster is iced, spiced, baked and beaming for your pleasure. Oyster features bespoke illustrations from the late Frightened Rabbit lead singer and songwriter Scott Hutchison.

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.
