Simply Modern Life, Paperback / softback Book


This collection of twenty-two beautifully illustrated poems provides an acutely observed, satirical view of modern life. Using traditional rhymes and a highly accessible style to provide perceptive insights into the sometimes serious, sometimes humorous issues presented by life today, readers will undoubtedly empathise with the poems. From internet trolls to people who use mobile phones on trains, this collection will appeal to readers of all ages.

Covering topics such as Ofsted, school assemblies and people who fall asleep in AGMs, the poetry would be equally at home in schools, social clubs, day centres or sitting on people's coffee tables at home. Detailed and quirky illustrations are included on almost every page, which make a delightful addition to the poems and highlight the comedic element.

This collection will quickly become a favourite for thumbing through the pages and discovering new delights on each re-read. From the author of Different Genes (Matador, 2017) and founder of the popular website, Books for Older Readers.
