'Everything wrong with you is beautiful' is a celebration of the foul-ups, losses and ridiculousnesses encountered while attempting to live a worthwhile life. Tina finds profundity in profanity, freedom through debt, wisdom in a cup of tea. She explodes the big things that don't matter, seeks out the tiny secrets that do. She is equally seduced by both eight-foot gods and cupcakes via awkward sex talks and debt, the result is Radio 4 with the shackles off. Part cry for freedom, part recipe for survival, you have picked this book up for a reason. Now open it up and work out what that reason is.
Tina Sederholm is an award-winning poet, writer and raconteur who has journeyed along that little known career path from international event rider to performance poet. No-one saw this coming, least of all her. From a concerned little girl doing her best to follow the rules and her dream to win Badminton Horse Trials, she has turned into an acerbic, big-hearted sweary, insatiably curious woman who uses poetry to pry open paradoxes such as the positives of failure, the richness in debt and the quixotic nature of love. A multiple slam winner, she has performed at festivals and gigs all over the country for the last fifteen years, including the Royal Albert Hall and the Edinburgh Fringe, where her three solo shows have been awarded four and five star reviews. This is her third collection.
