Before the COVID-19 global pandemic, Dubliner Jan was working as a freelance fashion stylist and creative director. Now, she is an experienced homeschool teacher, playground chaperone, cook, cleaner, fed-up walker and kitchen disco DJ. At the height of the restrictions, Jan’s own internal dialogue finally tumbled onto the page. The result is this book of poems: raw, honest and funny observations on family and relationships, on feeling a bit crap and being perfectly imperfect.

Jan’s lyrical writings offer a fresh perspective on modern life, written with humour, heart and honesty.

What Day Is It? Who gives a f*ck expresses all the rage, loss,fun and love that have stunned and occupied us since March 2020.


...a witty, succinct set of observations about our collective Covid experience. You’ll laugh, you may cry, and you will certainly relate.

- Ellie Balfe, The Wren
