The Story Chair

by Gerry Potter
£9.00   paperback  Flapjack Press (2016)

The Story Chair by Gerry Potter "The Vacant Chair echoes throughout my life. They're vibrant, mystical, time-travelling things, telling tales of the end of lives, of invisible families, of no-longer friends, half-written legendary lovers. Story chairs indeed."
 
In his sixth autobiographical collection of poetry and prose Gerry explores his fascination with Ireland and a culture steeped in storytelling. Recalling news reports from his childhood he retraces history, experiencing passion, politics and conflict in a poignant and provocative road trip through time.
 
The Story Chair includes a Foreword by Abby Oliveira and concludes with the RPF play 'Last Ceilidh in Liverpool'.
 
Gerry Potter is a poet, playwright, director, actor, and both creator and destroyer of the infamous gingham diva and queer icon, Chloe Poems. A favourite son of Manchester and his home town Liverpool, he has a reputation for putting his Scouse voice on the line and is strong on poetry and strong on the causes of poetryism.
