Scourge of Brisbane’s poetasters (indeed of all that breed) Liam Ferney (1979-) is an irascible risk-taking entertainer who earns his living as a PR flak, who from the age of 14 was involved in poetry readings and festivals. Boom captures the fabulous combative nature of Ferney’s experience & poetry; this is language to be confronted head-on and devoured whole.
