ACOTJ back to back 2

Due to popular demand a select handful of signed copies of my latest collection of poetry, A Child of the Jago, are now available for purchase. Go to Cart tab above and click the paypal button. Now, take it easy fiends, I know I said the book would only be available for one night only, (at the book and artwork launch) but it was brought to my boozy attention by some uber Ridgwell fanatics that not everyone who digs my work will be able to get to some run down boozer in East London in March of this year. For those of you who can get to the launch I would say hold fire on ordering a copy until that day, as you might just save some bees and honey if you do. (free pie & mash from Manze to every buyer)


Provisional dates for the launch are 20th & 21st of March and the venue at the time of writing is The Orford House Social Club in Orford Road Walthamstow E.17. Stayed tuned for confirmation of dates & venue.

Original Artwork, etchings, paper cuts etc will also be exhibited on the night by artist Martin Ridgwell and will be made available for purchase.

And if you’re still scratching your mangy beards or downy upper lip hair, wondering if the collection is any good, or worse, worth the exorbitant tariff then let me just remind you that none other than Heathcote, Whale Nation, Williams considered the Jago to be a classic. Admittedly he didn’t set himself on fire after reading the book like when Jean, the prawn, Shrimpton dumped him, but even so eat your heart out!
