Edwards is the queen that brought us books including Kissing the Coronavirus and Penetrated by the President's Twitter Feed, so naturally, my hopes were simultaneously impossibly high and on the floor for this book. As the title says, this book is a poetry collection, which is very different from the type of work we're accustomed to from Edwards, however, it does not disappoint. While this book might be tamer than M. J. Edwards' previous work, it's also longer, so we have more material to go over. So let's discuss. And note: when I say tamer, it's important to remember that that's in comparison to Kissing the Coronavirus... so that doesn't mean this is tame. I have to admit, some of these poems actually weren't bad. When I first picked this book up, I expected stuff along the lines of Kissing the Coronavirus. I thought I would finish this book and want to never look another human being in the eyes again. But there were some poems here that I actually found myself agreeing with. I never thought that would be possible. Don't get me wrong, M. J. Edward's iconic writing style and humor are here. But that doesn't negate some of the messages. Politicians are corrupt and selfish, on all sides; "All Lives Matter" completely ignores the point of the Black Lives Matter movement; and our support of healthcare workers throughout the pandemic has been extremely performative. But you're probably not here to think too deeply so let's talk about the fun stuff that I wish I could block out. This book begins with an introduction from M. J. Edward's son, Richard. Now, if you haven't been keeping up with M. J. Edwards' life that she reveals in her author's notes, you're missing out. They contain a story of their own. The last author's note left M. J. Edwards living with her son, who is "partly supportive" of her work. And in this introduction, we hear more of Richard's thoughts on M. J. Edward's writing. Speaking of M. J. Edward's personal life, we get much more information about it in this book. The 18 ferrets she spoke about in her Kissing the Coronavirus? Her husband took them when he left her for her sister. And yes, we get a poem about it. Edwards describes ferrets in this poem as "like snakes, but fluffy, and with legs" and this is the best possible description for ferrets. Also, this poem is mostly Edwards calling her husband a bastard, repeatedly, and I don't know. I kinda agree with her now. I'm invested. He better give her her ferrets back. (although I'm very happy she now has a new one, Chump) Speaking of things I can agree with: the first poem is my favorite. It's titled "2020", and simply repeats "fuck you, fuck you, fuck you". And to be honest? That's a mood. There's also an entire poem that's an ode to Chris Whitty, featuring the line: "When you say 'next slide please / You make me feel so shy." which is not something I expected to read but you know what? I'm glad we're over here romanticizing people who know what they're doing during this pandemic. In the poem titled "Vaccine Roll Out", we also get another interesting line: "Never mind Optimus Prime You're making me Optimistic Prime" I am happy to announce that this is the best line ever written. Nothing can top this literary genius. Also, in the poem "Eat Out to Help Out", we get the lines: "Eat Out To Help Out, they said, a catchy phrase and one quite clear enough Except for me, because it turns out, it doesn't mean to lick a muff." So... that's a thing. M. J. Edwards is apparently an LGBTQ+ icon and I've never been happier ... except I possibly could've been happier if I didn't have to read that. And don't worry, this is an M. J. Edwards book, so there are also scarring lines about food. In the poem "Lost", Edwards discusses losing her job, and states that she "didn't intend on [her] vibrator / falling in your tea" I've never been more glad I don't drink tea. I won't go into detail on the rest of the poems, because I need something for you guys to discover on your own. But in the end, this book was only slightly scarring, and reading it was not the most regrettable decision of my life.

    Dear M.J. Edwards, in the last year you have lost a husband, but gained a stan very loyal customer in me who has read your whole backlist and is helping paying for your bills. that's more than you can say about your cheating soon-to-be-ex-husband, so not all of 2020 was shit, only 99% of it. we're having the year 2021 and embracing the little wins. ✨ your poem 2020 touched me on a spiritual level. I don't think I ever related to something on such a deep level. thank you for writing this touching Dear M.J. Edwards, in the last year you have lost a husband, but gained a stan very loyal customer in me who has read your whole backlist and is helping paying for your bills. that's more than you can say about your cheating soon-to-be-ex-husband, so not all of 2020 was shit, only 99% of it. we're having the year 2021 and embracing the little wins. ✨ your poem 2020 touched me on a spiritual level. I don't think I ever related to something on such a deep level. thank you for writing this touching piece of art. I finally feel seen. my second favorite chapter after 2020 must be Introducton that was written by your beloved son Richard Edwards . I love how he keeps praising, not so much your erotica writing, but your poem writing skills, because I can clearly see how much emotion you have poured into these poems. your relationship with your son is #goals. keep supporting each other through viruserotica and all, cause that's the spirit. Dr. Gurtlychund is looking proudly down at you. 😌 it was really hard to find a top 3, but after taking a whole 0,4 seconds to think about it, I have to go with the poem Single Girl, just because it was read to the tune of Barbie Girl and an out-of-body experience. wow. together with Kissing the Coronavirus it's one of your better writing and brought me to tears, especially the wanky wanky at the end. *chef's kiss* I’m a single girl, in a covid world, Life indoors, it’s so poor. You can’t hug me tight, just stay home and read Twilight What a shit show, life right now sure does blow. I’m a mid-fifties girl, in a post-covid world Lock me down, make it tight, it’s so shitty No more fun, no more sun, just the same drab four walls, Takeaways, more TV, wanky wanky. the reason why I couldn't give this more than 2 stars is because... I was– excuse me– but this is really hard to say and never in my life did I think I would say these words about anything that you– Queen M.J. Edwards– have written, but I was bored. the rest of the poems is fairly normal and you know the say normal is boring . I hope you take this very constructive criticism and work it into your next release. for 2021 I wish you and your new baby pet Chump all the best. stay healthy and hydrated! with love, Phuong

    As soon as I saw that Edwards released a new book, I bought it immediately and few authors have that power over me! The cover may be very simple in comparison to the sexy covers of Kissing the Corona Virus series but never judge a book by its cover because the inside was really worth it. The book starts with some praise for the book including some praise from Richard who is the author's son and that was just hilarious!

The book starts with some praise for the book including some praise from Richard who is the author's son and that was just hilarious! It is also different because it is a poetry book and I think Edwards is a great poet compared to her novel writing abilities! What surprised me is how much did this book contain, from clapping to the health care workers, to Wandavision and The Queen's Gambit, it also included poetry about the BLM movement and elections and Zoom meetings. There are also some personal stories from the author as her husband cheating on her and then taking all the ferrets. Her vibrator dropping into a cup of tea! (And the sexual and lewd jokes) So it was really funny and surprising and it was worth the dollar I spent on it! I actually do recommend this one for a few laughs. I am ending this review with one of the poems: Black Lives Matter a poem by M.J. Edwards When I first heard black lives matter, I was confused, I thought, “don’t all lives matter?” But then I realised, I once gave money to Save the Rainforest, But I didn’t think “don’t all forests matter?” Then I didn’t think the first thing anymore.

    First came the coronavirus. Then came Kissing the Coronavirus, in which we learned about the author's many ferrets. Next, Penetrated by the President's Twitter Feed, revealing the author's marriage separation. It was dedicated For Diane She knows what she did and, with obvious subtext, the following passage about the main character's cheating husband: ​Then he’d take out his penis, and place it in her hand like triathletes passing the baton mid-race. ​She’d stroke it for a while but always though First came the coronavirus. Then came Kissing the Coronavirus, in which we learned about the author's many ferrets. Next, Penetrated by the President's Twitter Feed, revealing the author's marriage separation. It was dedicated For Diane She knows what she did and, with obvious subtext, the following passage about the main character's cheating husband: ​Then he’d take out his penis, and place it in her hand like triathletes passing the baton mid-race. ​She’d stroke it for a while but always thought it felt a little strange, like a raw, uncoiled Cumberland sausage wrapped in damp string. Truly, literary revenge is the best revenge. Following that, The Second Wave made explicit what was already clear, that the author had left her husband because of infidelity, and she was now living with her adult son. Now, finally, with the publication of this poetry collection, the full truth is revealed: He was sexing his wife's sister. That's cold, man. (You too, Diane.) This, and other topics that will be familiar to everyone living through 2020 and beyond, are covered here. The perspective is primarily British, but extends across the pond to the antics of the Orange Menace; an ocean was an insufficient barrier to such. I appreciate the window into the author's life through this time period, but the poems are quite terrible. The first one leaves little room for argument, however. I particularly enjoyed the introduction from the author's son, which helpfully concluded with: mum don’t put this bit in my intro but you def should edit out the poem about the pizza place because it’s a bit too bloody weird even for you ok? I’ll give you a ring later x Oh yes, the pizza place poem is included. Ordinarily, I prefer not to know such intimate details of an author's life when I read their books contemporaeneously, but I am totally here for it in this case. BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FERRETS, you ask? Her cheating husband took them, then irresponsibly released them to the wild on the Isle of Skye. So not cool, man.

    A little more serious than her recent stories, with commentary of the past year and the sh*t show that was 2020 but still sprinkled with the humour that I've come to love. The updates on her life (with the b**tard husband, evil sister and the ferrets) are just everything I didn't know I wanted. Thank you for sharing MJ, I have become weirdly invested in what happens in your life!

    Honestly MJ Edwards is a queen - as soon as I see another book has been released I buy it and reading it straight away! Always makes me laugh, and some of the poems in this book were very relatable. Her ex husband and sister need to get in the bin though! Hope she’s smashing life with Chump x
