Poet turns London stories into new book
27th October 2014

Performance poet and writer Anthony Anaxagorou runs one of the hottest poetry nights in London. 

North London based Anthony has now written a collection of short stories, many of which are inspired by his home town.

He gives London Live a performance and explains the inspiration behind the pieces.  

Anaxagorou also explains how his Cypriot heritage defines his work and helps him avoid what he dislikes in 'flat', traditional English writing.
