Luke Wright emerges from his enforced retirement with an infectious thirst for life. But what kind of life, and does it bear any resemblance to the one he had before? Against the backdrop of pandemic politics, ageing parents, and an endless droning culture war, Wright holds a squat party in his ‘poor old heart.’ So come on, put your name on the guest list alongside a cast of murderous swans, sozzled devils, and the people we most want to protect. 

Whether he’s playing master of ceremonies at a Libertines show in front of 5,000 screaming rock fans or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is adept at taking poetry places it doesn’t normally go. His poems can be tender, riotous, caustic or romantic and he delivers them with the ferocity and panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.  

Wright’s third collection The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is out now from Penned in the Margins. Ian Duhig calls it a “a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock in fresh words.”

Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling and hypnotic.
