The Luckiest Man Alive is an opportunity for John to read extracts from his recent book of poetry which is influenced by the modern era. The book varies from the grand (‘Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman’) to the more distinct  nuances that describe the  seductive properties of the humble pie.

His  show stopping performance technique can be summed up in three ways :-
