Bad Boy Poet
Scott Manley Hadley
'Highly Commended' in the Forward Prizes for Poetry 2020
Bad Boy Poet is the debut poetry collection from whingy hipster blogger Scott Manley Hadley.
It is a series of “confessional-style” poems describing the life of a confused and conflicted youngish man as he tries to work out who he is, following a mental health crisis and the subsequent breakdown of a relationship. Also there’s loads about poo, illness, ageing, masculinity, Pierce Brosnan, sexuality and dogs.
