The first new collection since 2013 from the nation’s favourite poet, Pam Ayres
The brand new collection of verse from the nation’s favourite poet, Pam Ayres.
With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam’s new collection is by turns hilarious, reflective and profound. From the dubious joy of being an exhausted, panic-stricken hostess in ‘The Dinner Party’ or feelings of unease about pub tableware in ‘Don’t Put My Dinner on the Slate!’, to a poignant reflection of war in 'Down the Line'and the bittersweet nostalgia of ‘Up in the Attic’, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.
“Pam Ayres is absolutely essential to British humour, reminding us all to be tickled by the small joys and ridiculousness of everyday life.”
Mail on Sunday
“My prescription for Christmas jollity would be Pam’s book passed around by the family”
