This poetry collection introduces a new and powerful voice championing Scotland's most belittled city, suffused with fierce pride in its native Dundee. Written in the Dundonian dialect, Thomson's work displays passion for his town, his country, his mother tongue and, most of all, for his people.

He began writing after completing a Hilltown Horizons literary course, where he met other Dundonian poets Kevin McCabe and Gary Robertson. Together he and Robertson formed street poetry partnership Tribal Tongues. He now leads creative writing courses himself and runs national literacy organisation workshops. His students have included children from the Barnardo's organisation.
