Join Unity Books Wellington, Stasis Journal and Dead Bird Books for the launch of the debut poetry collection by Jordan Hamel.
Everyone is Everyone Except You begins as a eulogy but opens out to a profound acceptance for the less-than-glamorous things that populate a life: failed relationships and confused intimacy; bad advice and poor preparation for manhood. Along the way, unexpected joys emerge, like eloping to Carterton in a Corolla, or getting it on to the memory of the All Blacks. An honest and hilarious debut from one of Aotearoa’s most exciting new poets. Alternately comical and insightful, Jordan Hamel reinvents the time-honoured portrait-of-the-artist for a millennial sensibility.
