Hope Not Hate Review My Book, PAKI LOVER

“‘I used to step / on the same paving slabs / as the great working-class poet / Tony Harrison,’ writes Andy Carrington, proudly, in ‘Poetic Self Defence’. Carrington’s straightforward language and personal honesty are reminiscent of Harrison, though his style has more in common with American thirties poets such as Kenneth Fearing, whose tough Marxism was often tinged with bitterness.”

Many thanks to Ben Speroni for the write-up.
