Gig

(2008)
The Life and Times of a Rock-star Fantasist
A non fiction book by

 
 
From punk to mod to New Romantic, and eventually to acclaimed poet, Simon Armitage writes about a life where music and poetry have been core. And about a place, the village of Marsden in west Yorkshire, where he can stand and look out across a huge circumference of inspiration and influence: Joy Division, the Smiths and The Fall to the west, the Comsat Angels and Pulp to the south, Andrew Marvell and Larkin way out east, Ted Hughes and Plath just to the north. "Gig" is a warm, vivid, wonderful book about music, poetry, family and ...always ...the North.
