Growing up in a council house in Leeds, Wes Brown dreamed of becoming a 'real' man like the ones in his ex-pro wrestler dad's tales of heroes and villains, gods and monsters. The only problem was he never told him they were fake. In this modern-day Pinocchio story, Wes follows in his father's footsteps in the hope of coming to terms with the fictions that make a man. Wes Brown will read from his book Breaking Kayfabe(Bluemoose Books, 2023) and discuss the writing of the book with Birkbeck’s Julia Bell.
