A new collection of poems by Hull author Mike Watts will be launched at Pave Bar on Princes Avenue, Hull on Monday 29 June 2015

Jawbreaker CoverFrom the author of Coming to a Street Near You and Day and Night in the Damaged Goods Factory comes Jawbreaker.

His third book in five years, Jawbreaker is the brand new collection from the forthright Hull writer Mike Watts, who has entertained the crowds on stages large and small, up and down the country.

Intrigued after seeing a poem left in an old typewriter, the young Mike was inspired to write.  By dedicating his third title, Jawbreaker to Michael Ponsonby, a Hull trawlerman and the owner of that typewriter, the Hull author is paying homage to where it all began.

Mike WattsTimes are hard and Mike Watts’ poetry is a mirror for them,’ Helen Mort

Expect tales of madness joy, beauty and belligerence all delivered with Mike’s trademark grit and passion. These poems are as real as the street outside and twice as exhilarating‘: Russ Litten
