Quick Overview

When We Were Almost Like Men explores the world of the modern courier industry, the working lives of the men and women caught inside the machinery of the modern city. From controllers to couriers, telephonists to mechanics, supervisors to sales reps, Martin Hayes is a guide to a kind of hell that is simultaneously fascinating, depressing, hopeless and hilarious, exploring what it means to hold down a job when all the odds seem to be stacked against you.

‘Martin Hayes' poems rev through the pages like the literary equivalent of a white-knuckle ride – they are original, unapologetic, clever and quite unforgettable' - Jenny Swann

‘this is poetry like virtually no-one else in Britain is writing. It is funny, wise, sad, tragic and thoroughly memorable’ - Mistress Quickly’s Bed
