Joining Charles Adrian up in the Frobisher Boardroom at London’s Barbican Centre for the 108th Second-Hand Book Factory is poet, spoken word performer, producer, writer and educator Dan Simpson. They discuss a world in which the word cyber still evoked a streetwise tomorrow, an experience that might arguably be described as the worst date ever and a poetic response to the onset of austerity.
