Fin Hall has the unique skill of making the darkest angst intertwine with everyday life occurrences in a way that is so utterly real it’s impossible to tear your eyes from the page. A hard-hitting poetry collection that takes the reader on a nostalgic journey of stark memories, free from sugar-coating yet beautiful in their wisdom. Needs no subtitles as the message of every poem comes through thick and fast, leaving emotions raw in their wake. Sometimes sad, at times confrontational, often hopeful, always truthful, Once Upon A Time There Was, Now There Isn’t is an unmissable debut!
