Nothing Is Complete Before It Is Broken
Ole Wesenberg Nielsen is a Danish punk poet whose work is widely admired. Born in 1965 in Fredericia he now lives in Aarhus, Denmark, where he works as a social-educator during the day, and is an underground rock DJ on the weekends. His first collection of poems, Happiness is a Rumour, was published by Les Editions du Zaporogue, in 2008. That collection was described as "a mystical punk assemblage of daily reflections and lyrical visions, laced with psychedelic-fueled humour."
This new collection further extends Nielsen's range while losing nothing of his acerbic wit and passion.
"Ole Wesenberg Nielsen's poems question our smug, self-satisfied society. . . nothing is safe from the stiletto jabs of his words as they attack the flesh of cant, hypocrisy and self-delusion."
