"The luckiest guy alive" by John Cooper Clarke (Picador, 2018)

I've long had a soft spot for him. I couldn't find much to like in this book though. The odd line faintly amused me - e.g. "Startled eyebrows pencilled in. Taking compliments on the chin" (p.37). My favourite poems were "Crossing the floor" and "Trouble @ t'Mall".
