Baldwin's Catholic Geese, Paperback / softback Book

Baldwin's Catholic Geese Paperback / softback


Keith Hutson's debut collection, Baldwin's Catholic Geese, looks at life, death, triumph, tragedy, through the lens of not only beloved music hall and variety artistes like Hylda Baker and Frankie Howerd, but also the obscure, long-forgotten acts such as The Bryn Pugh Sponge Dancers, Macauley's Leaping Infants, Willy Netta's Singing Jockeys, and many more. Here is a celebration of poetic form and of the extraordinary characters who have entertained us for over two centuries.

Comedy and grief, laughter and mourning bring into sharp focus what it means for all of us who have to make the most of our luck - the good, the bad, and the bizarre.
