From the book’s blurb:

Makeover is a book dripping with nostalgia, cigarette ash and sour cream dip. Lit by too-close TV screens and too-bright calorie counters, Bolger’s poems explore growing up, differing bodies and societal expectations.

Writing in praise of mums, nans and sisterhood, this is a work bursting with strength, anger, love and, ultimately, hope. In a celebration of girls shaped by swimming baths and Working Men’s Clubs, friendship and family, Makeover contends with what we inherit and what we ought to pass on.

‘Intimate, warm, and with teeth clenching wit, Bolger turns the domestic into an epic.’ ~ Joelle Taylor

‘Laurie Bolger’s writing is a best friend, a memory, a picnic, a hug and a punch. “I want to live without weighing things” is maybe my favourite line of poetry this year, and definitely my new life motto. Stunning.’ ~ Hollie McNish
