Bobby Parker was born in 1982 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire. His critically acclaimed first full-length poetry collection Blue Movie (2014) is available from Nine Arches Press. He has taught at The Poetry School and been widely published in magazines in print and online. Working Class Voodoo is a selection of Bobby’s best work from the last few years, continuing in the strange, raw, autobiographical vein for which is he known. He currently lives in Kidderminster, England with his girlfriend, daughter and cat, where he paints abstract–expressionist pictures and works on his next project: a book about the horror of Benzodiazepine addiction, withdrawal and recovery.
