The Quarantine Hotline #5 — Miggy Angel

A new interview series in which we beat the lockdown blues reaching out to friends for a nice and informal telephone chat. In our third episode, Fernando Sdrigotti talks to Miggy Angel, who is currently in lockdown in Nottingham, UK.

Some of the topics discussed: poetry as an activist weapon, working class culture, the gentrification of South London, and his latest books Boy Bestiary (IceFloe Press) and Hour of the Dog (Saló Press).
