Luke Wright (2017 Event)

Travel the unfashionable A-roads of England with award-winning poet and spoken word artist Luke Wright, performing work from his new collection The Toll in this event recorded live at the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival. Discover a country riven by inequality but sustained by a surreal, gallows humour. In lines perfected on roads, stages and radio shows across the country, Wright captures the strain of austerity Britain, speaking truth to power and registering the toll it takes on us all.
