More About the Author

Jon is a flâneur of words and the Internet who created, wrote and directed (mainly by Direct Message) the first ever piece of drama to be performed on Twitter. Back in 2008 he persuaded a cast including MP Tom Watson to give over their timelines to perform Twitpanto: a full length piece of theatre that spun its story out into the unsuspecting online World. He's organised psychogeographic trips around Birmingham's Outer Circle, measured the emotional wellbeing of the city, started 'Talk Like a Brummie Day', and as well as founding the famous blog Birmingham: It's Not Shit. He currently edits Paradise Circus: A Birmingham Miscellany. All of his projects work in the space where emotion and place collide--online and off.

He's currently finishing a book about visiting every seaside pier in England and Wales -- Pier Review -- which has been described as "On the Road meets On the Buses".

Jon was the '14th Most Influential Person in the West Midlands' 2008. Subsequently not placed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good writing means good reading 15 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There is a lot of mediocre writing out there, loads on the Internet, loads on the bookshelves but good writing is rare. This collection is a collection of good writing. It draws connections between things which make you go "ah hah!", it makes you think differently about things like Elvis's records, it shows another way of looking at the world. I read it on the bus, appropriately enough as you will see when you read the collection, and the journey did not seem long enough.

This is a collection of good writing - if you are interested in football, Elvis, English pop eccentrics or how we live today then you will find something to amuse, inform and make you think here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very likable short stories 13 Feb. 2012
By Brian Bigelow - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Definitely something a bit different here in this series of shorts. I thought the writing style is rather good, seems to flow through each of the shorts pretty well. Just as you would expect with it being a compilation each short is a completely different story that doesn't take very long to read through.
