Ali Whitelock is a Scottish poet/writer now calling Australia home. Join her in conversation with author Poppy Nwosu as she discusses her second poetry collection, the lactic acid in the calves of your despair.

Political, profound, profane. These poems of defiant disobedience crash through the barriers erected to keep us contained. Writing with humour and tenderness, Ali Whitelock takes us through the parched landscape of life, death, love, fear, regret and the unbearable sadness of losing a dog.

Imprints Booksellers is taking online, email and phone orders of 'the lactic acid in the calves of your despair' and offers FREE home-delivery within Adelaide from the foothills to the beach, and from Bedford Park to Port Adelaide. They also deliver FREE all over SA for orders of $50 or more.
