Dale’s library


Contrapreneur in chief” Dale Lately wrote for The Guardian, VICE, Huffington Post, Slate, Baffler, Big Issue, Litro, Pop Matters, Quietus, Huffington Post and 3:AM Magazine….. On arrival in Manchester he set up the Antisocial Networking Club and started the Dale Lately blog pages

He leaves behind  several million words, with many more on his blog site – a vast inter-connected web of online & part-published drafts – tomes, novels, docu-fiction and general contrapreneurial diatribes and discourses… (along with countless provocations and contrarian windups on social media)

This site will grow over time as a living archive, as his literary community gets to grips with dusty files and manuscripts, as they emerge from the digital underworlds all around us… (any material, send to joe.ravetz@gmail.com ….)

At this moment we are seeking the “The 12 tribes of Manchester – from Laptopia to the Frack-donalds pickup zone” – if anyone knows the whereabouts….
