WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
Not a book but a spoken word album, featuring fifteen poems plus a hidden bonus track. We’re All In This Together is bawdy, funny and also, at times, rather touching and sad, displaying Wright’s ability to take a stereotyped character and find the humanity in them.
Opener The Drunk Train promises this album will “peer behind Britannia’s grin and shake her towns like money tins” and the following poems do exactly that, taking in fat bullies, posh school boys obsessed with “drawing willies on their toys,” baby-boomers hell-bent on spending their kids’ inheritance and a B Movie set in Brentwood.
“One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation.” Johann Hari
“The best young performance poet around.” The Observer
