Tom Sastry

Tom Sastry

Our next meeting at the Swig and Vittle, on Feb. 20th., is devoted to  Tom Sastry.
Tom was one of the 2016 Laureate’s Choice poets, chosen by Carol Ann Duffy.

He was born in 1974.  He is a second generation Original, his mother being Originally English and his father Originally Indian. He grew up in Buckinghamshire and has lived in Bristol since 1999. He thinks that not belonging is more interesting than belonging. He has spent most of his life in bedrooms, classrooms and offices. He enjoys having to deny that he is an anarchist. Complicity is his first pamphlet, and reviewer Jacqueline Saphra praises his “fresh, original voice”.

Join us for what promises to be an enjoyable feast of poetry, with a prompt start at 8.00pm.  The evening will begin with poems from the floor.  See you then!
