Teeth in the Back of my Neck




An arresting debut collection about identity, ancestry and history, from a young poet selected as an inaugural winner of the #Merky Books New Writers Prize.

An arresting debut collection from a young poet, Monika Radojevic’s Teeth in the Back of My Neck was the inaugural winner of the #Merky Books New Writers' Prize, dedicated to discovering the stories that aren’t being heard and to find the best writer of a new generation.

Written with profound depth and insight, the poems in Teeth in the Back of My Neck will explore the joys, the confusions and the moments of sadness behind having one’s history scattered around the globe ­– and the way in which your identity is always worn on your skin, whether you like or not.
