My Dog Gave Me The Clap eBook

by Adam Morris

About the Book

The author swears this ISN’T a semi-autobiographical first novel. That’s just as well. Adam’s dog has already said he ‘resents the implication’ and we can only speculate as to what his chickens will say if, and when, they read chapter nine.

That said, this is a wonderfully grungy novel about Saul, a part-time muso and part-time teacher. Saul is the kind of guy who hangs out in his mate’s backyard planning the best way to acquit his unemployment benefit on booze. He’s trying to resolve the big questions in life — like what thoughts he should put in his negative thought diary, how to avoid the compulsory office teabreak and what the hell happened at last night’s drunken Akubra photoshoot.

One thing Saul knows already is that there are some gigs you don’t want to get. My Dog Gave Me The Clap is a discomforting, in your face, compelling and funny book about masculine identity and missed epiphanies.

What do robots and poetry have in common?

In an unexpected collaboration local poet Nandi Chinna will team up with a Dutch robot for the 2015 Fremantle Street Arts Festival.

SKRYF, which is the brainchild of Eindhoven artist Gijs van Bon, will creep around the Fremantle Town Hall leaving a trail of Chinna’s poetry created from piles of sand. »
