A Self Help Guide to Being in Love With Jeremy Corbyn | Brighton - The Warren - Brighton

When Jess joined the Labour Party at university in 2007 she doubled the number of members who met weekly in a Liverpool pub. Since then she’s stuck by the party through the downfall of Blair, the disappointment of Brown and the monolith of Miliband. Now, “after a decade of keeping her membership card firmly at the back of her wallet”, she’s fallen head over heels in love with Corbyn’s “raw socialist magnetism”. If only everyone else agreed... A Self Help Guide to Being in Love With Jeremy Corbyn sees Jess ask how the party will ever win another general election when the left is so divided.Following the success of her first poetry show, Burning Books which received 5* acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe and on its national tour in 2015, Jess Green returns with a lyrical, powerful and humorous look at modern politics.“I love the poetry. I love the spirit. I love the creativity. Fantastic” – Jeremy Corbyn “Green’s voice is urgent, important and immensely enjoyable; she deserves to be heard” – Broadway Baby “Green has struck a chord” – The Guardian “Jess Green’s writing never fails to stir hope, humour and righteous anger, often all at the same time...the humanity and wit that shines through all of her work is universal” - Grace Petrie “Somehow Jess manages to be hard hitting in a way that’s so subtle you don’t realise until the bruises come up” – Scroobius Pip “Brilliant. Her words have certainly struck a chord” – Huffington Post
