Maria Ferguson | Alright, Girl?
Alright, Girl? published by Burning Eye Books on 2 March

Flawless. An essential read for the 2020s. Salena Godden

β€œAlright, Girl? is an extremely personal yet relatable exploration of class, gender and belonging. Full of heart and humour, these poems chart the almost impossible task of surviving in an age of austerity and gentrification. Through the comfort of old man pubs, the heartbreak of loss, the search for love and the wonder of female friendship, Maria Ferguson paints a true picture of what it means to be a woman in modern society.”
