joinedupwriting, Paperback / softback Book


'The patron saint of poetry' Carol Ann Duffy'McGough is a true original and more than one generation would be much the poorer without him' The Times_______________For fifty years, Roger McGough has delighted readers with poetry that is at once playful and poignant, intimate and universal.

In his latest collection, he explores the whole gamut of the human experience, from forgotten friendships and family life, to the trauma of war and contemporary politics, wittily showing us who we are in all our shades of light and dark. _______________'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 '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
