Mike’s first book with the legendary Peterloo Poets, one of the best of the small specialist presses. After many many rejections from poetry publishers Mike sent his poems to Harry Chambers of Peterloo under an assumed name Christopher O’Neil, (his middle name and his mother’s maiden name). The reason for the assumed name was that Mike was on TV quite a lot at the time and wanted his poetry to be accepted for what it was and not because he was a face

Mike Harding was born in Crumpsall, Manchester in 1944, into a working-class Irish-Catholic family. Tragically, his father was killed returning from a bombing mission with the Lancaster Bombers just 4 weeks before Mike was born, an event which inspired the song "Bombers' Moon". Much of the inspiration for Mike's writing, poetry and songs comes from his early years growing up in post-war Manchester. Mike has since released the comic albums "God's Own Drunk" ('89), "Chinese Takeaway Blues" ('92) and "The Bubbly Snot Monster" ('94) as well as his second book of poetry, 'Daddy Edgar's Pools'. He has also written the hilarious 'Hypnotising the Cat', 'The Virgin of the Discos', a collection of short stories, 'Buns For the Elephants', his second children's book (all 1995) and his 'Footloose In The Himalaya', travel book.
