    I'll put this out there right off: I am not a poetry person.BUTI saw Wright perform this modern epic of a poem live, and it was spell-binding.Very powerful, and so evocative of the time it is set. Full of hope and anger and despair, it has stuck with me."What I Learned from Johnny Bevan" is an absorbing read, but is absolutely electrifying live. If you can manage to see Wright perform it, grab that opportunity with both hands.
