Poet James Brown's treasure trove

From Standing Room Only, 2:25 pm on 26 June 2022

Lynn meets Wellington poet James Brown, whose latest collection is called The Tip Shop. It's a treasure trove of surprises and appropriately includes some 'found poems'. The collection also offers glimpses into Jame's life from his time as a nightime supermarket shelf filler, learning how to roll boulders through to a rather long list of musts and must nots. James Brown describes himself as 'a Sunday poet who fell in with the wrong crowd'.
