Harry Whitewolf is doing his own thing.

He's the author of two ragamuffin travelling tales: Route Number 11 (about Harry's five-month drunken journey around Argentina; and across the borders to Paraguay, Chile and Brazil) and The Road To Purification (which describes his mad-as-fuck pot-smoking trip around Egypt).

PRIMORDIAL YOUTH - New Book Out Now!

PRIMORDIAL YOUTH - The Early Poems: '96 - '99 PRIMORDIAL YOUTH - The Early Poems: '96 - '99 - OUT NOW!

Poems (and paintings) from the fragile mind of a messed-up young man battling with depression.


This book’s my equivalent of a scratchy-sounding bootleg early-recordings album. I don’t even feel as though I wrote the poems in this book, as they were penned at the height of my depression between the ages of twenty and twenty-three. (I’m now an old codger of forty-thre...NOW!

“Fascists always attack minorities,
Which is an irony,
'Cos fascists are a minority.”
Harry Whitewolf, Underdogs Unite

“Your politics are so far right,
They're wrong.”
Harry Whitewolf, Rhyme and Rebellion

“Driving down deserted early morning roads. Round and round. Round downtown. Through naked streets. Lips pursed on two litre bottles of beer, but pursuing the lips of freedom's night. Swapping cars. Winding up at karaoke bars or Bolsi- the best place in town. For the food. For the folk. For the service. For the crema de papaya. And for that late night dawn's whiskey coffee.”
Harry Whitewolf, Route Number 11: Argentina, Angels & Alcohol

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Be the change you want to see in the world”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.”
Bertrand Russell

“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“Pretty soon...do you realize there'll be so many additional childhoods and pasts with everybody writing about them everybody'll give up reading in despair-There'll be an Explosion of childhoods and pasts, they'll have to have a giant Brain print them out microscopically on film to be stored in a warehouse on Mars to give Heaven Seventy Kotis to catch up on all that reading- Seventy Million Million Kotis! - Whoopee! - Everything is free!”
Jack Kerouac, Desolation Angels

“How many more of these stinking, double-downer sideshows will we have to go through before we can get ourselves straight enough to put together some kind of national election that will give me and the at least 20 million people I tend to agree with a chance to vote FOR something, instead of always being faced with that old familiar choice between the lesser of two evils?”

I hope not - I didn't like being "Mad" Harry in Egypt!

Maybe I should write a book about Mad Harry's lesser known half-brother 'Slightly Whacky Gary' instead.
