We learn more about Whitewolf simply by reading his poetry, he describes himself as being “anti-capitalist” resisting consumerism, all forms of propaganda -- “propaganda politics, propaganda Hollywood” on TV, radio, newspapers. He urges his readers to turn away and open their minds to the truth that we are never entirely free from cultural influence.
Whitewolf’s poetry defines a sense of rough and gritty urban masculinity, as he smokes heavily, drinks excessively in “Sussex Sex” and gets thrown out of his lover’s flat (the term “lover” is loosely implied) the couple appear as hopeless drunks, binging on one another for sexual gratification. “The House of Nowhere” continues a story of an aimless drifter, and “the man you hate” is full of self-loathing in the longest poem in the collection “Jack The Lad”. The differences between English and American culture and expression are also noted in this brief engaging collection of urban poetry. Great book cover! 3* GOOD.

"Old McDonald had a restaurant" is genius, it had me laughing big time, it also explains why Harry Whitewolf's career as a children's entertainer didn't work out. The lack of privacy in the world is covered in "See C.C.T.V." this was one of my favourites in the collection, you can hear Harry reading it on soundcloud, I'd leave a link but that's against Amazon's bizarre rules so you'll have to look for it yourself, it's well worth the time having a search though.
"Headaches, Hassles and Hustles" takes the reader back to Harry's Egypt trip, If he ever rewrites the blurb for his book The Road To Purification: Hustlers, Hassles & Hash, then this would be perfect for it.
This is a great collection and it was very interesting to get inside Harry's head when he was in his 30's, at times dark and cynical and at other times things can be uplifting, especially when he is horny or when he uses his cheeky humour. The writing is clever the way he uses words always blows my mind, re-read a poem and you're sure to pick up something you missed the first time. Very emotional stuff with a touch of Dr Seuss style rhyming. My favourite book of poetry released this year.
My favorites of the bunch:
Too Many Choices
Black Fingers (Smoker’s Bruise - Part Two)
