Heather Phillipson's Whip-hot & Grippy is The Telegraph's Poetry Book of the Month

 


The Telegraph, Poetry Book of the Month, online Wednesday 1 May, in print Saturday 4 May 2019

Heather Phillipson’s second collection Whip-hot & Grippy is Tristram Fane Saunders’ Poetry Book of the Month for April in The Telegraph. The review appeared in the print edition on Saturday 4 May, and is available online here.

‘Next year Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth will hold an enormous dollop of whipped cream, topped with a cherry, a fly and a buzzing drone. Created by British artist and author Heather Phillipson, that sugar-rush sculpture – surreal, witty and grotesque – captures the essence of her poetry.’ – Tristram Fane Saunders, The Telegraph (choosing Whip-hot & Grippy as his Poetry Book of the Month for April 2019)

Heather Phillipson's sculpture THE END on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London, will launch in March 2020 - more here.
