Martin Figura is an award-winning poet and recently described as a pleasant 58 year old gentleman in a hospital referral letter (bad back). He has performed at Festivals all over Britain, including several Latitudes and in the USA, Canada and India.
As the title implies Martin Figura casts his sharp satirical eye on life’s trials and tribulations with warmth and humour.
Subjects range from to the joy of having a Down’s Syndrome daughter to still being sexually active at 60 (he is merciless in examining his own vanities). There is little he won’t talk about and doesn’t let lack of knowledge get in the way of giving an opinion.
He will move you and have you laughing out loud in turns. The book of the same title has been through several print runs.
