Poetry. The debut collection from Robert Herbert McClean, PANGS!, is a poetry book for the digital age, reflecting our modern culture of obsessive notation and text-based communication. It is fast-paced and explosive, honest and fearless, intimate and unashamed. McClean's writing establishes new possibilities for recording and reacting to the realities of modern life. Poems about love, sex, violence and religion exist in a landscape of CCTV, Skype, YouTube, torrents and hard drives, operating via the propulsion of a cohesive yet fragmentary narrative, set to a soundtrack of synth pop and thrash metal.
