Booker Prize new POP Art Win

The POPolution (PinkyOrangePurple) has been recognised by the Booker Prize, mentioned here yesterday, with Milkman by Anna Burns winning it for Faber and Faber; it’s only book. F&F was also mentioned here yesterday as the publishers of Moby’s Porcelain memoir.

Against Hierarchical Grooming

The subject matter is also relevant to the greenYgrey/POP cause, campaigning against hierarchical grooming, as I have been doing for the last fifteen years in university, work and writing.

As long as the subject is being written about and read it doesn’t matter who’s doing it, although I would obviously have preferred it to be me; I add with unhumble narcissistic egotism self-parody to ‘keep it real’, and try not to look too unctuous and obsequious (two new words I learnt recently and remembered now off the top of my coffilosophy head, and spelt correctly).

New POP Art

I don’t want to let serious issues overshadow the POP celebrations though, and here’s the winning cover stripped of content in true Andy Warhol-style pop art; which could just as well have been the cover of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, representing greenYgrey’s POP art travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol.

Even the simple title ‘Milkman’ is quite pop art, reminding me of Warhol’s Campbell’s soup tins and Coca Cola bottle images. I don’t think he did milk, but there are some other condensed milk ones in pop art style available online:

Thank you Anna Burns, Faber and Faber and the Booker Prize judging panel.
