That's Not a Fishing Boat, It's a Giraffe: Responses to Austerity

Ian McMillan

 

In this new pamphlet Ian McMillan looks around at almost ten years of cruel austerity and tries to make a bit of sense of it from his position in the outskirts of Barnsley. He’s dipped his grey hair in red ink and started to write and the things that appeared have surprised him with their bleakness, and what blurb writers call their wry humour.
