It’s the Honest Publishing Bundle on the Bookshelf book launch! To be Honest, there isn’t really any bundling. But there are some books and we have no doubt whatsoever there’ll be a shelf there somewhere. Come and help us celebrate the launch of Love and Fuck Poems by Koraly Dimitriadis (“Wow. Dimitriadis pulls no punches here. This is armed-missile poetry.”) and Belly Up! by Darren Allen and William Barker (featuring the pen work of Robert Crumb and The New Yorker‘s John O’Brien – a mad, butcherous, sweet, caustic carnival of surreal beauty and salt-in-the-eye satire).
What more could you possibly ask for from a Tuesday night? (And we’ve put a packet of bourbons* behind the bar – first come, first served. And some wine. Not much though, it’s expensive…)
