What Wesley Says
Picture the past six months of your life. Picture everything you have done in that time. Picture scrapping all that for sitting in front of a yellowing old home computer writing a book you never wanted to write. Picture that home computer being situated in your nan’s house. Picture also living in that house because your wife has full time gone off you. Picture that book being your last chance of making anything of your life. Picture initial local reviews shitting all over any hope you had left.
Wesley Henry has written things all over the internet. YouTube. Twitter. Facebook. SongMeanings. They have all featured Wesley's stories about how his wife left him. Occasionally, some of these things have been picked up on. Wesley has had his little bits and pieces featured in Adam Buxton's Kernel Panic and Best of Bug live shows. He also wrote one joke for series 10 of Newsjack on BBC Radio 4extra. That was the first thing Wesley had ever written that wasn't a direct or indirect complaint about his life. It was a joke about potholes.
