Reviews for The Eejit Pit
Elizabeth Rimmer, The Scottish Review of Books:
"[Jenny Lindsay is] justly renowned as a virtuoso performance poet. […] The Eejit Pit is a snapshot of an accomplished performer, but also a work of art in its own right.”
Sally Evans, Poetry Scotland Reviews:
“[These are] poems of confidence and substance. She can be expansive or minimal, cheerful and funny, or less cheerful but still funny.”
Andrew Sclater, Sphinx: all about poetry pamphlets:
“The Eejit Pit has a vigorous feel to it, and a straight joy in language as reflected in the pamphlet’s title poem, made from a Scots fridge magnet poem kit.”

Harry Giles, Sidekick Books:
“Whether it’s in sarcastically loving odes like Edinburgh or bitter zeitgeist narratives like Tick, the voice that sounds clearly is of 21st century anger, scunnered by self-consciousness and lightened by cautious hope. […] The Eejit Pit is a rich and complex way marker of our journey through […] the continuing debates between performance poets and page poets.”

The poems:
Edinburgh
The Things You Leave Behind
Intimacy
Taking Back the Night
I Promise I Will Not Fall in Love With You
Tick
Mirrors
The Truth
The Eejit Pit
