Heather Phillipson: Whip-Hot & Grippy

Heather Phillipson: Whip-Hot & Grippy
Library Shelf Location 34a.PHIL
Publication Date 2019

Whip-hot & Grippy is a highly innovative ‘collection of possibilities in a state of emergency’. The first part is a series of long-form and sequenced poems punctuated by recurring muzak, advertising-speak, sex scenes, terrorism, broadcast media, consumption-anxiety, protest, and human-animal relations. The book culminates in more flinching, a multi-part poem first published and freely distributed in an exhibition in which news of a military dog, shot in service, was merged with the death of a pet dog.

Whip-hot & Grippy is Heather Phillipson's second collection, following her highly praised debut, Instant-flex 718, published by Bloodaxe in 2013.
