Cumshot in D Minor is the debut title from Offord Road Books, by the Somerset Maugham Award-winning poet Melissa Lee-Houghton. In this pamphlet Lee-Houghton revisits the perils of sexuality, threat and persistence that have made her not only one of the most-read of the Next Generation Poets, but also one of the most controversial and gripping poets of our time. In Cumshot in D Minor the barest facts of sex and aggression are examined in Lee-Houghton’s typically fierce style, but she also enacts a dry and sly wit in these considerations, prompting laughter in the dark as well as fear. These intimate, brilliantly hard pieces reward rereading, and mark a confronting next step in the career of one of our most fearless poets.
