ABOUT  Max

Max Wallis is a poet and artist based in East London. His first book Modern Love was nominated for the Polari Prize, and he has been described as a "poetry wunderkind" by Curious Arts Festival.

His second book, Everything Everything, is a limited edition art piece, hand bound and typeset; it looks at millennial sexuality with a blast of reality. "Read this book," - Russell T Davies.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"I've waited a long time for this, an astonishing new voice. Max Wallis writes from the depths of 2am, with a magnificent ruthless stare into the heart of love, sex, joy and regret. These are gorgeous, supreme poems whose unflinching honesty cuts right down deep to the bone. Read this book."
