The Sunshine Kid

Harry Baker

Restocked and loaded for 2015 — if your New Year's resolution was to read more, or be funnier and better looking, or support a young boys dream of becoming a professional writer* then buying this book will fulfil at least one of the above. Reading it will fulfil another. Tell your friends about it and in my eyes you're 3 for 3 — I'll even sign it if you ask nicely. Thank you!

The book

Harry Baker's debut collection follows the narrative of his 5-Star Edinburgh Fringe shows, Harry Baker's Super-Amazing Mega-Awesome Gap Year Adventures: Birth of a Champion and Proper Pop-Up Purple Paper People. It details the journey from performing Jay Z-Maths parodies in school competitions to representing his country in Paris and becoming the youngest ever World Poetry Slam Champion. The Sunshine Kid contains the raw honesty, tongue-in-cheek humour and blistering wordplay that have characterised his live performances and won the hearts and minds of audiences all across the globe.

“It's tight, clever and intricate writing that has made Harry Baker a show stealer every time I've had him at my spoken word nights, whether he's a last minute stand in or a fully billed headliner.”

Scroobius Pip
