    Gig: Rock 'N Roll Dreams in a Northern Town

    By: Simon Armitage

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    'Engaging, eccentric, hilarious, incredibly good company. A wonderwall of moments and memories . . . one of our most entertaining authors' Independent

    A poet is a rock star without the sex'n'drugs, or the rock'n'roll. But that never stopped Simon Armitage dreaming, and in Gig, he explores how music and the muse intertwine in work and in life. Crammed with stories, anecdotes, jokes, absurdities, the odd informal homily, pitfalls and pratfalls (not all the author's own), Yorkshire life and death, Gig is about the dream and reality of what you are, and what you might have been.

    'Armitage is incapable of writing anything that is not wry, warm, witty and layered with meaning. Poignant and extraordinary' Metro

    'Witty, terrific, stupendously funny' Daily Telegraph

    'Profoundly affecting . . . probably the greatest joy I'll find on a page all year . . . reads like a transcript of the funniest stand-up you'll never hear' Herald

    'Very, very funny . . . the kind of book you'll want to press on your friends' GQ
