David Herd's first collection of poems - brazenly mixing the rhetoric of Britain's New Labour with Ezra Pound and progressive poetics - seeks to answer a seemingly simple question: "Is it possible to be happy in the age of Mandelson?" The poems display a virtuoso approach to form, ranging from jazzy riffs to Japanese Noh drama, with lyrical moments and satirical swipes.
