Book Launch - God Save the Teen, with Andrew Graves
Mulletproof new bookGod Save The Teen takes us through the side streets of modern Britain, finding love and loss within the fractured estates and beleaguered communities and pays homage to the likes of Johnny Cash, Alan Moore and Nottingham’s own Brian Clough.It’s a gritty, chaotic and curious rhetoric, perfectly in keeping with the post-Brexit, uneasy atmosphere of an increasingly out of control, faltering modernity.
