Breakfast at Wetherspoons by Jim Greenhalf (signed first edition)
Breakfast at Wetherspoons is a poetry book full of insight, heart and mental refreshment. It's also, in the words of its author Jim Greenhalf, "a meditation on the idea that man is born free and everywhere he is in chainstores"
Greenhalf's book considers freedom and necessity, mortality and time, Tolstoy, Diogenes and Jihadi John. It's a late-flowering 40-year old love story. And it's a kind of bleak Bradford noir, in which the author explores life among the Struldbrugs queuing in the Co-op, stays too long in the Hard Day's Night Hotel and catches the last train to Skipton. At the end of Dead Pan Alley there is always a view of Salts Mill and the green hill rising steeply to Baildon, where John Wesley preached on the eve of the French Revolution.
