Roger McGough is one of Britain’s best loved poets and this collection ‘charts [his] passage from youthful exuberance to the wry reflection of his later years. What remains the same throughout the 40 years is the poet’s winning wit, accessibility and abiding readability’ Independent ———————————-‘Time has confirmed … that McGough’s talent was much more substantial than many of his long-forgotten detractors suspected.

If he was a pop poet it was not in any ephemeral sense. A shy extrovert … he has given voice to poetry and found a voice of his own which is humourful, introspective, irreverent, easy on the ear, conversational.

It is also 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
