Safety in Numbers

  • Roger McGough



A beautiful new collection of poetry from one of Britain's best-loved poets

From 'Adultery in Isolation' to 'After You. No, After You' to 'Seaside Staycation,' a new collection from one of Britain's best-loved poets. Roger McGough brings his inimitable voice to subjects light and dark, relationships old and new, and the slippery, strange, and surreal nature of recent times. Alight with humour, wit, wisdom, and feeling, the finest poetry with the lightest touch from a poet who has captured the imagination of readers for decades.

Praise for Safety in Numbers

McGough is a true original and more than one generation would be much the poorer without him

The Times

McGough has done for poetry what champagne does for weddings

Time Out

Memorable and enduring and fresh. Age has not withered [his lines] nor diminished their potency. Of how much modern poetry can you say that?

Sunday Herald, on 'joinedupwriting'

McGough's trademarks: the craft worn as lightly as the crown, the jokes that are something more, the underlying heartache, the acute sense of the way time slips away

Poetry Review, on 'joinedupwriting'

The patron saint of poetry

Carol Ann Duffy
