Litvinoff at Guardian

Very interesting article at Guardian Online about legendary East End Jewish writer Emanuel Litvinoff.

Below is a clip of me reading a poem, Improve Yourself, at Bishopsgate Institute. The poem is based on an extract of prose from Litvinoff’s Journeys Through A Small Planet (1972; recently republished as a Penguin Classic).

  1. Thanks Aaron. Great news about the re-release of Journeys Through A Small Planet. A remarkable, insightful and hugely enjoyable book, especially for anyone interested in the history of the East End, the immigrant experience, and city life.
