The Suburban is a collection of stories and poems by Paul Cree,
charting ten years of performing regularly on the UK Spoken Word
circuit. The material speaks of his own commuter-town upbringing to
living in the Big Smoke itself and the inevitable trials and
tribulations that come with it. From low paid jobs to relationships,
education, class, football, music and manhood; all told in Paul's very
own, unique voice and style.
