Profile | Dom Hoey & his book, Party Tricks & Boring Secrets

Dominic Hoey, aka Tourettes has just completed a tour of New Zealand, performing his poetry alongside Brisbane musician Ben Salter.

Along with hauling ass around Aotearoa he also just released a book of poems, Party Tricks and Boring Secrets, illustrated by Joshua Solomon from Two Hands Tattoo, and is about to head to New York City for another series of shows.

Dom’s generously shared some of his work (below) for us to enjoy, but here’s a link so you can purchase the whole set. As he asks Santa in poem #2, “Heaps of money would be nice… but keep that between us, poets aren’t supposed to care about that sort of thing.” Help Santa out, and trade some of your gold for some of Dom’s.
