Tom Pickard - The Jarrow March sequence

Download MP3

Tom Pickard talks about his research into the Jarrow March of 1936, the parallels with the contemporary political and economic situation of the early 1980s and the unusual figure of Jonathan Martin, who attempted to burn down York Minster in the early 19th century. He reads a selection of his work, including poems from the Jarrow March sequence and his short story 'Fuck Dust'.
