Journeying from coming of age, coming to Manchester and coming to terms with life, Rob Steventon employs a wide range of poetic forms and interjecting tales to wrangle humour from the more preposterous – and disgraceful – aspects of modern society.
Political, radical and filled with social commentary, astute wit and comic observation, How I Made My Millions proves that accessible poetry is not the sole property of advertising companies.
