Private Parts

Private Parts is a collection of gems from the territory that Fiona Pitt-Kethley is renowned for exploring: contemporary sexuality. Her other poetry books, Dogs, Sky Ray Lolly and A Perfect Man caused considerable controversy because of their direct language and unorthodox subject matter and were widely praised for their honesty, perception and refusal to compromise. In Private Parts, Fiona Pitt-Kethley again attacks hypocrisy, cruelty and exploitation, shattering the myths and uncovering hidden truths, in dramas of the ordinary and the perverse, the romantic and the sordid. Both angry and comic, this is an impassioned collection from one of the country's most gifted and strikingly original poets.
