Stay-at-Home Dandy

11 Feb 2015

Decadent boozehound Luke Wright would love to spend his life flouncing around looking fabulous, but back in rural Suffolk he’s got the school run to do. Navel-gazing is all very well, but other people can be magic…

Wright tells stories in visceral verse from neglected corners of Britain. Meet the cane-swinging, merlot-glugging ‘Bastard of Bungay’; spend half-term with lonely science teacher Mr Hooper; and cry ‘NOT IN MY NAME’ with the irate villagers of Much Harpingon. By turns funny, poignant and political, this stay-at-home dandy celebrates ordinary people having extraordinary moments, then sticks a champagne-rinsed Rococo boot into the swines who run things.
