More Pricks Than Prizes
Author: Tom Pickard
Publisher: Pressed Wafer (2010)
More Pricks Than Prizes is a memoir that takes Pickard from Newcastle in 1968 to London's Old Bailey in 1976, with side trips to Poland. The poet Basil Bunting makes an appearance. As does Paul McCartney. This is a true crime story with a happy ending.
"I am an old admirer of Tom Pickard's poetry and believe as does Basil Bunting that he is one of the most live and true poetic voices in Great Britain."
