Dominic Hoey, Michael Pedersen, Omar Musa National Tour Announced

C.C. / Tuesday 24th September, 2019 10:27AM

Tāmaki Makaurau wordsmith Dominic Hoey, who sometimes goes by the moniker of Tourettes, is releasing his third book of poetry I Thought We’d Be Famous via Dead Bird Books this October, and is embarking on a national release tour alongside Malaysian-Australian author, rapper and poet Omar Musa and Scottish poet, writer and animateur Michael Pedersen. Hoey recently appeared in Tom Scott's Don’t Quit Your Day Job documentary reciting his poem 'How To Lose Money And Entertain People' – the author, playwright and poet's new collection follows his best-selling 2018 debut novel Iceland, and was succinctly described by the artist in conversation with denizen as "about Channing Tatum and Edward Furlong and Chilli the Pomeranian and the teacher who beat us half to death and killing your landlord and sleeping with zombies and falling in love so hard you wake up concussed."
