Part love letter to his adopted home city of Manchester, part critique of the arts and governing bodies (both specific and societal), Gerry's eighth collection of autobiographical, domestic/fantastic theatre-verse is a socio-political, hard-hittin' 'n' thought-provokin' collection of poetry, prose and plays.
Adhering to working-class and socialist principles, this polemic discourse on the rise and rise of The Bourgeois Zeitgeist challenges perceptions, misrepresentations and acceptance, and acts as a rallying call for those seeking to confront privilege and injustice.
Manchester Isn't the Greatest City in the World includes 80 poems, 2 play scripts, a 20,000 word treatise on The Bourgeois Zeitgeist and the latest of the author's infamous Outroductions.
Plus a Foreword by Caleb Everett.
Read an interview with Gerry in The Guardian.
