Back cover text:

This is a new and powerful collection of poetry written by native Dundonian Gary Robertson in his own distinctive tongue - the Dundonian dialect. Robertson's comical style of poetry tackles every aspect of living and growing up in a Scottish town, from working the night shift to logging on to myspace. With humour he is able to explore the darker side of Dundee with poems that highlight gang violence and the abuse of drink and drugs in a way that enlightens without alienating. This colourful and honest verse comes unashamedly from the streets to offer a unique view of Dundee and its people from one of its own.
